You're hearing steam whistles from the Pratt campus. It's a tradition: "The steam whistles at Read Morethe Pratt Institute will blow once more tomorrow night, welcoming the new year with their sustained, deafening cries. What better way to ring in 2014 than with permanent hearing loss? Pratt's Chief Engineer, Conrad Milster, will begin assembling and testing the whistles—between 12 and 15 altogether, with one calliope—tomorrow afternoon. The assembly process isn't complicated, he said, but it is cumbersome: The pipes that feed the whistles are comprised of six pieces, and each piece weighs around 250 pounds. The whistles themselves are between 20 and 150 pounds each. Milster has been operating the whistles himself for the past 47 years, though they've been a part of the Pratt fabric for much longer—photos of the devices around campus date back to the 1890s, and the whistles were blown at the conclusion of each commencement ceremony until it was moved to Radio City Music Hall five years ago. (Now, he said, students must settle with a recorded video.) The whistles will wail on the main lawn of Pratt's Brooklyn campus beginning at the stroke of midnight, and will continue for around 30 or 45 minutes, depending on turn-out." from Gothamist
