Residents of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, N.Y., are flooding officials with noise complaints in the days since helicopter tour flights relocated to the South Street Seaport heliport after they were banned from the West Side Heliport effective April 1. South Street is owned by New York’s Economic Development Corporation.

A spokesman for the corporation said it was working on a solution to the citizen complaints, but he declined to provide specifics. The shift increased overall South Street traffic by 10 percent.
