Two upcoming Atlantic Yards-related community meetings

Two community meetings related to Barclays Center and Atlantic Yards have been scheduled for the next few weeks:
 
1).  PUBLIC PRESENTATION OF THE B2 DESIGN 
Empire State Development, along with Community Boards 2, 6, & 8 are co-hosting a public meeting on the evening of Thursday, November 29 to share with the Brooklyn community the plans for the first residential building at the Atlantic Yards site.  Representatives of the developer will make a presentation and answer questions.

2).  ATLANTIC YARDS QUALITY OF LIFE COMMITTEE
This meeting is a forum for representatives from the community and civic groups to engage elected officials, Empire State Development, FCRC and arena operators regarding issues affecting the quality of life for residents and businesses in close proximity to Barclays Center.
Each civic group can designate only 1 representative to directly participate.  That civic group should RSVP that individual’s name and contact information to Derek Lynch at Dlynch@esd.ny.gov.  Email suggestions for the agenda by Friday, November 30th.

Large crowds on Dean Street make sidewalks busy

Location: 
Dean Street from 6th Avenue to arena surface parking lot
When: 
November 12, 2012 - 10:30pm

A large crowd walked from Barclays to the parking lot on Dean Street. There were some tight passages along the sidewalk due to the crowd density. Some on the crowd sang even though they were passing residences. A freelancer sold Bieber t-shirts on the street, (before and after the event).  Illegally parked black limos and Moms in cars picked up concert-goers in the fire lane across the street from the station. A fire truck had just exited minutes before.
 

Trucks queue to access loading dock for Bieber production

Location: 
North side of Dean Street btwn. 6th and Flatbush
When: 
November 12, 2012 - 11:30pm

Two trucks queued on Dean Street waiting for entry to the loading dock for at least half an hour.  The second truck turned off its engine, but the first idled for up to half an hour.  Only when NYPD asked the driver to turn off its engine did he turn it off.  The first driver did confirm that he came from the Navy Yard.  He wasn't happy he had to wait at the arena.  The trucks finally entered the elevators when two other trucks in the loading dock emerged.

Bieber fans chase bus down residential street

Location: 
From Dean at loading dock down Dean Street toward Carlton Avenue
When: 
November 12, 2012 - 11:15pm

Hundreds of fans gathered near the loading dock and on the public sidewalks on Dean Street near Barclays Center chased a tour bus they believed had Justin Bieber in it down residential Dean Street. The bus eventually came to a stop near Dean Playground.  From my vantage point I could not tell if the bus stopped because fans got in front of it or because the bus stopped to let fans catch up to it.
 

bass sound felt inside house with closed windows

Location: 
39 St. Mark's Avenue (5-6th)
When: 
October 27, 2012 - 1:45am

Disturbed by bass sound from SEnsation show at arena up to and including 1:45AM through CLOSED storm and inner windows in 2nd floor bedroom.

311 operator thought this had to be reported to "88th" precinct, and I tried to correct her unsuccessfully.

Bass sound and vibrations

Location: 
St. Mark's Avenue (3 blocks away from arena)
When: 
October 28, 2012 - 1:14am

Can hear and feel bass from Sensation show at corner of St. Marks and 5th, and can hear it inside our home with window closed.

Totally unacceptable, annoying, upsetting.

Loud and Late

Location: 
212 S. Oxford Street
When: 
October 27, 2012 - 1:00am

Loud, wall shaking noise from event at arena.

Loud dance music - bass and bass drum

Location: 
212 S. Oxford St.
When: 
October 26, 2012 - 1:30am

incredibly disturbing dance music that was so loud my noise machine and pillow on my head couldn't block it out. Even more disturbing was the stop/start nature of the noise. I couldn't believe how late this was going on. This was the first event that could be heard in our building, 212 S. Oxford St (at Atlantic.) This building has over 100 kids in it. This cannot be repeated...worse than the 24 hour work permit that we suffered through.

Bass noise very late

Location: 
Dean near Carlton
When: 
October 27, 2012 - 1:30am

Bass was worst yet from Sensation show. 311 did take the report and someone from the 88th called at 1:30 to say it was the Arena, and it was really shaking the precinct house, but there was nothing they could do about it. The officer did tell me that there was another show tonight.

Incessant Bass

Location: 
Halfway up South Portland
When: 
October 27, 2012 - 12:34am

Incessant bass from Sensation show from 9pm to time of report at 12:41.
