Movity is a Bay Area startup with a goal of making it easier for people to move by identifying compatible neighborhood characteristics so prospective renters and buyers know “what it is REALLY like to live there.” One of the characteristics they have identified as being important to buyers and renters is noise. To that end, they’ve produced the TenderNoise Project, a demo that shows measured noise levels in and around San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.

The data were collected using Reed ST-173 logging meters (also sold as the CEM DT-173) deployed at various intersections in the neighborhood. The levels are high, but they are consistent with what I remember measuring in and around downtown San Francisco.
