53 5th Avenue car parked at hydrant
mostly black cars, one stretch limo, some with placards some not. All in bus stop, No Standing, or No Parking Anytime zones.
Note: this is a ONE-TIME, casual observation during egress from area and does not represent a survey.
11 buses with All Star Game placards parked and idling nose to tail along Flatbush.... One driver said they had been at Red Hook but were told to wait here instead. Is this what was planned? Many official looking handlers in the area. Some said they did not know why the buses were there, but he didn't know any plans.
Arena and/or Nets executives regularly used the Pad (and sometimes the sidewalk in front of it) to park their cars. There are still non-construction passenger vehicles parked in the area that once was the Pad, but it appears the executives have now also been given permission to use the Satellite Uplink Lot.
The crosswalk on this intersection has been unsafe and continuously shared between cars, trucks, bikers , construction trucks and pedestrians. The authorities, DOB, or the developers did not even bother painting a new crosswalk in a more safe location, indicating where pedestrians should cross to stay safeand away from cars. Several times a day there are no workers helping and indicating the way.
