A letter from Barclays Center attorney William Schrieber to Brooklyn Community Board 6 dated June 5 mentions a detail of the arena's plans for liquor sales that apparently has not been disclosed up to now: Barclays Center's four clubs will serve alcohol up to one hour after arena events end—as late as 2:00 AM.
Section 5 of Mr. Schrieber's letter states:
"For premium, limited access areas of the Arena such as the suites, clubs and the restaurant, alcohol service will continue until one hour after the end of NBA games and other events.
"Sales of alcoholic beverages for all public events at the Arena will end throughout the Arena, including the suites, clubs and the restaurant, no later than 2:00 a.m."
At an April 10 public meeting held at the 78th Precinct station house, representatives from Barclays Center maintained that liquor sales would end at the beginning of the fourth quarter of NBA games. No exception for the arena clubs was stated. Officials from Forest City Ratner Companies, when asked about liquor sales during public meetings, have likewise maintained that sales would end at the beginning of the fourth quarter. FCRC tends to frame discussions of arena operations in terms of NBA games, even though such games make up less than 20% of the 220 events expected to take place at Barclays Center each year.

The EDC has the power to ban and/or fine FCR and these trucking companies, if they are issuing fines them, then fining them is ineffective or why when will the ESD start fining or banning them. Why should the NYDP be asked by the ESD to use police resources until the ESD has exhausted all means available to them? Continued on slot of Barclays Arena dump trucks illegally using residential Bergen St and not using NYCDOT truck routes again reported & brought to the attention of the 78th precinct during the 2012-05-29 meeting.
