STFU, coworkers!

How to cope with a noisy workplace?

I work as a web developer in an open space, and unfortunately, I am the type of developers who needs silence in order to concentrate on my code. This is a small startup, where people leave their music, ringtones, and other noisy devices, open. There's noise through the whole day, and I'm having difficulties to be productive. I've informed my managers about this, but since they are quite happy with background music, they've disregarded my requests and needs. How do you cope with such a situation? Are you aware of any good corporate "noise policy"? What do you think I should do?

Where can I scream?

I live in an oldish (1920s) apartment building, in a studio. A while ago I tried the time-honored "scream and rant to an empty room" method of anger management--and got a visit from a dozen cops my neighbor called, and who went through my place to check that I wasn't axe-murdering someone or anything like that. This is, of course, not sustainable, but if I can't rant at home, where can I rant? [more inside]

NYC Public Assembly/Protest Laws

I am looking for some New York (City) laws and statues regarding public assembly. Specifically: is there any recourse against a group that stands around with a megaphone and screams? There has to be a decibel limit to how loud you can be in public, right? Less specifically: Do you need a permit to assemble if you have a certain number of people? What is the legal status of noise complaints? Anything related to this would be helpful. Thanks!

Measure how noisily I sleep :-)

I have a pretty bad case of night terrors. I am turning to the hive mind to help me identify a cheap and effective solution/device that will record the times when I'm audible throughout the night. I don't want to know what I'm saying as it sometimes freaks me out (nothing scary, I'm just weirded out by listening to myself yell/whisper subconciously). So a tape/voice recorder is out of the running. In short, I need to know what time I make noise, and maybe a little squiggle or number on a piece of paper/read out screen letting me know how loud I was relative to the rest of that night (I'm thinking of the needle that scrbbles on rolling paper with a time stamp next to it like a seizmograph). Any suggestions? This can be hand made or purchased as long as it's not too expensive :-)
