Father pushing baby pram & pedestrians (with back to traffic so they can’t see traffic coming at them) again forced into traffic lanes by arena construction workers blocking the entire sidewalk. The west side of 6th between Dean St & Pacific is closed. The supervisor just stands there & takes pictures of photographer instead of tending to the safety of residents.
Previous & continued disregard for pedestrian safety.

Location: 
620 Atlantic Ave - 6th Ave bet Dean St & Pacific St
When: 
July 2, 2012 - 2:59pm

BOTH sides of 6th Ave sidewalks between Pacific St & Dean St are now blocked with NO PRIOR notice to the community that the east side was also blocked. What appears to be the job site supervisor or foreman is more interested in taking pictures of photographer than flagging, minding or assisting mothers with children, the elderly & other pedestrian’s safely thru an active construction excavating area.

2012-06-22 Barclays Arena - FCR contractor-operator of heavy equipment earth mover blocks fire truck for around 20min

Location: 
620 Atlantic Ave - mid Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & 6th Ave
When: 
June 22, 2012 - 3:13pm

When FCR contractor/operator of heavy equipment earth mover enters onto public Pacific St & is followed by FCR pickup truck ignores that fact that a double parked contractor van will prevent enough clearance for the earth mover to get by; the FCR contractor driver transverses close enough to block the entire public street and also blocks a NYC fire department fire truck for around +/- 20 minutes. The heavy equipment earth mover & fire truck were mid-block of a 171 unit residential building with around 100 families with children residing on the Pacific St side.
