NYC Lawyer Suing Neighbor Over Too-Loud Christmas Music

"I’m tired of hearing ‘Jingle Bells’ like 700 or 800 times a day.”

There are only so many times you can hear a song before you start going a little bit crazy. One New York City lawyer has had enough of his neighbor’s Christmas decorations and is suing her for blaring non-stop Christmas music through a loudspeaker.


“It’s not like she plays it a half-hour every day,” said Nick Wilder, who’s representing himself in the case. “It’s on from 7 a.m. to midnight.  I like a Christmas song on Christmas Day. But I’m tired of hearing ‘Jingle Bells’ like 700 or 800 times a day.”

Wilder said Lisa Marie Falcone, whose husband is hedge-fund billionaire Phillip Falcone, owns three adjoining town houses across the street from his apartment on the Upper East Side.

“She’s a prima donna who thinks she can do anything she wants without consideration for anybody,” Wilder said. “She’s invading other people’s homes with her elevator music.”

Wilder is seeking an injunction to force her to stop playing the music.

Falcone did not respond to the Post‘s requests for comment.

Other neighbors have commented on the display, with some applauding Wilder’s actions while others think Falcone’s display is no big deal.
