2011-12-03 Barclay's arena contractors dump unknown white power next to 171 unit residential building
Can the ESDC or FCR please tell the community what unknown white power substance was dumped into the street next to 171 unit residential building from a Barclay’s arena contractor? Is there any penalties?

Barclay’s arena construction workers double park daily blocking/hindering traffic to change clothes, etc makes traffic honk
Barclay’s construction workers double park daily blocking/hindering traffic to change clothes, eat breakfast, smoke, wait for parking causing congestion from cruising arena workers looking for free parking or arena delivery truck parking illegally idling causing thru traffic to honk their horns (some honking by FCR truck) @ 5:30am ~ 7am daily underneath a 171 residential building. In this instance (see picture) there was a open parking space the arena worker could have parked in. He wouldn't even attempt to move out of the way for traffic.
Daily continued failure of Barclay’s arena flaggers and ESDC controlling the delivery trucks.

An incorrect Alternate Parking Sign that was switched on the North side of Pacific St almost directly across from the parking garage door @ 700 Pacific St was replace back to Alt side parking M~T 11:30am~1pm previously reported:
Garbage is a long-term problem on Vanderbilt between Pacific Street and Atlantic Avenue lining the AY footprint. The garbage is located between the concrete barriers and the plywood fencing that makes up the construction barrier. It has been in this location for months. The area appears never to be cleaned. The garbage includes food waste, a doll, toilet paper, etc.

"Works in Progress," Artbridge’s exhibition of 20 digital prints installed in segments along construction fencing circling the arena block, is located on Flatbush Avenue, Dean Street and 6th Avenue. It will be in place until April or May of next year.
Artbridge is a non-profit public arts organization that according to its website, "beautifies neighborhoods and communities by transforming overhead construction scaffolding into larger-than-life canvas for the work of local emerging artists."
The photo to the left shows the exhibition being installed on a portion of the fencing along Dean Street between 6th Avenue and Flatbush Tuesday October 18th.
The effect of the exhibition is enhanced by the active construction of the Barclays Center rising behind as a backdrop. But its total running length is only 425 feet, and it is installed next to the first elements of project construction. The 22 acre project footprint has approximately 6,000 linear feet of fencing along its perimeter.
When the exhibition was announced to the public in June, AYW ran a story including a photograph (below, left) of a fence located on Atlantic Avenue at Vanderbilt. The photo to the right was taken October 8th.
