Madonna will have to go to court after a resident in her Central Park
West building at 1 West 64th Street has complained that she was being too loud, the New York
Post reported. A Manhattan Supreme Court judge is letting a complaint
by resident Karen George, who claims that Madonna would
play music and dance around so loudly downstairs that her apartment
above would shake, go to trial.

George also claims that in June 2008 she alerted the board and management of 1 W. 64th St. in addition to Madonna’s representatives, but no one took sufficient steps to fix the problem, the New York Law Journal reported. A May 2009 noise abatement measure by Madonna did not lower the volume, Ms. George argued. She initially sued the board and Midboro Management for breach of the warranty of habitability, private nuisance, attorney’s fees and injunctive relief that would have forced Madonna to comply with building rules preventing unreasonable noise. But the judge narrowed the suit because the building defendants hadn’t created the alleged noise.

Madonna’s spokesperson Liz Rosenberg said her client “no longer lives in
the building and hasn’t for several months,” but when Madonna was
there “she was a beloved and excellent neighbor.” The Real Deal
reported in 2008 that Madonna had purchased a seventh-floor co-op
unit at 1 West 64th for $7 million that overlooked Central Park.
