My grandma had lived in the flight path of Sydney airport ever since I was five, I don't like loud noises so the planes used to scare me a little, but in used to it. We also used to live in A helicopter flight path, we made a lot of MASH jokes.
But the worst story I think is from Luna Park, which has been in Sydney, off and on, since 1935.
It's also in prime real estate with new expensive apartments that were built right above it. They complained about the big roller coaster to the point where it had that many restrictions on operation it made the park unprofitable. The roller coaster is no longer there.
