What I never have understood about this argument is that the ballpark was there before the residents (unless their brownstones were handed down through family generations).
The fact that someone could buy a home a few blocks away from a major league ball park and then complain about the noise and traffic of night games is ridiculous. Sort of like buying a condo on the Vegas stip and then complaining about the lights never turning off.
