The owners of the 569-room Millenium Hilton in lower Manhattan have filed an $8 million law suit against the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Silverstein Properties for loss of business due to noise caused by construction at the World Trade Center site. According to The New York Daily News, the suit states that CDL LLC, the 55-story hotel's owner, has lost hundreds of nights worth of business in a single month due to customers relocating after one night of enduring the noise, including the blasting of rock and physical vibrations resulting from the work. The suit also states construction takes place sixteen hours a day, six days a week.
