2012-12-16 6 Wrestlemania Tour buses idle on Barclays pad (by generator & engine) & reported late overnight.
On my way to shopping on Flatbush I spent 15 minutes documenting problems with trucks at the arena this morning. In that time-frame I observed at least 5 violations of NYC and Atlantic Yards truck/traffic rules and regulations. This does not include the staging of probable performance-related trucks on Pacific Street this morning which appears to be another violation since it is now pretty clear they were performance related.
2012-12-11 700 Pacific St car park traffic jam & blocking & driving on sidewalk
2 hours before and 2 hours after events
Reported to 311 over an hour ago. Police have stopped at corner several times. No tickets issued to any of the illegally parked/idling limos/private cars.
3 Black SUVs (one escalade, one range rover, one Infinity) idling at bus stop in front of 43 5th avenue. The limos were there for the Rolling Stones concert at Barclays Arena.
There was a black limousine idling in front of 66 5th avenue. The limo was there for a Rolling Stones concert at Barclays Arena.
Police doing nice job ticketing illegally parked cars (as long as they're not "Officials" or idling limos)
Other than the blind eye turned toward illegally parked "Officials" going to Barclays Center events and idling limos, it is worth pointing out some good news/progress in terms of ticketing illegally parked cars. Hopefully this will start to discourage people from driving to Barclays Center events and ultimately cut down on the noise and free up legal spaces for residents.
