The drumming, most days and nights, is the soundtrack of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Some area residents who support the protests, can't stand the noise.
So Thursday night, they made a little noise of their own.
There were representatives of the protesters at the Community Board Committee meeting, who admitted they need to be better neighbors.
But as if to say that's not likely, some protesters drummed and chanted in front of the building where the meeting took place.
Still some from the group said they'll do better.
