Limos and black cars block entire lane of Flatbush

Location: 
Flatbush Ave b/wn 6th Ave and Dean St
When: 
February 5, 2013 - 9:50pm

Literally the entire right travel lane of Flatbush from 6th Ave headed to Dean Street was occupied with double parked/idling limos and black cars. This reduced Flatbush Ave to 1 lane in that direction, with predicable effect. (Congestion, honking, etc).

There were also black cars in the bus stop in from of Atrium/Vinnies. I did notice that one had a ticket.

It was a busy game night and of there were multiple similar violations on Bergen, 5th Ave, and other streets, with the usual idling and double parking, as well as blocking of bus stops ans fire hydrants.

Reports of noise from Jay-Z and Sensation circled Barclays Center

During the bass-heavy Sensation show at Barclays Center it was observed by residents, and confirmed by NYC Department of Environmental Protection, that noise at the arena was audible and disruptive in nearby homes.  

Numerous incident reports about noise from the arena were filed on AYW during Sensation and Jay-Z's concerts.  The diagram above shows the approximate locations complaints were submitted to AYW for those two events.   Jay-Z's music was heard as far away as the surface parking lot on block 1129. Jay-Z's performances ended by 11:30 PM.  Complaints received regarding Sensation extend to 1:30 AM; according to some reports the event continued until 5:00 AM.  

Honeymoon is over - back to the usual horns blaring/illegal parking

Black car idling at hydrant on corner of St. Marks Ave

The new norm - illegal parking, double-parking, idling, honking, loss of residential parking

Location: 
St. Marks Place b/w 4th & 5th Ave
When: 
December 23, 2012 - 2:30pm

Nothing new here....cars parked illegally in all the usual spots along 5th Ave. Private cars (some of which are residents trying to park) idling on side streets waiting for spots to open up....all combining to create the usual 2 hour pre and post-event horn-blaring show. It occurs to me that this problem could be largely solved by implementing resident permit parking like other cities have successfully done (Boston near Fenway park is good example).
