KEYPORT, N.J. ( — Hey, Keyport, be quiet. That’s the message Monmouth County is sending to this tiny, bucolic waterfront town on Raritan Bay.

Every evening around 6 p.m., tiny Keyport — population about 7,000 — broadcasts “Westminster Quarters” from its emergency alert siren behind town hall. It’s the same chimes played by Big Ben in London.

  1. They’re lucky. The church in my town used to blast that very song every 15 minutes for 9 hours a day. Complaints didn’t work until they got a new minister.
