Neighbors Hope Last Year’s Problems Don’t Repeat At Made In America

By Justin Udo

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Made In America Concert is underway on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Last year, residents close to the concert complained about the noise, the traffic and the people, and this year neighbors hope those won’t be as big of a concern this time around.

Many folks felt last year the music was just too loud, but now opinions are mixed on decibels coming from the Art Museum.

“You really can’t hear music, it’s just sound, it’s just noise,” this man said.

“It’s a lot of noise pollution for the neighborhood. I don’t get it,” said this woman.

They all say so far, however, the crowds and the traffic have not been a problem”

“The crowd just really seems to be hanging out all in the parkway,” this resident said.

The concert runs Saturday and Sunday until 11 p.m. and approximately 60,000 people are expected to come out each day.
