As part of a plan, limos for celebrities at the VMAs are sent down Dean Street in the reverse direction. They line up on the both sides of Dean Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues under people's homes, (see attached photos)
To reach Dean they travel down Carlton Avenue:
A limo parked on Bergen Street backs up against traffic to Carlton Avenue and joins the procession:

6th Avenue from Dean Street to Atlantic Avenue was still closed after 12:00 PM when I passed by Monday.
An elderly local resident tripped on a plate covering cables Saturday. She injured her face and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. It occurred near the fire station and fire department personnel handled the incident.
The production team first put stanchions over the plate covering the cables to enhance its visibility and eventually lifted it up with a steel overhanging bridge.
This incident is over. No 311 complaint was filed. This is to archive the incident.
The driver said he came out of the loading dock and was told to get out of the way immediately. He was forced to come down Dean Street and unload his container onto the street in a bus stop. He was busy covering the container when I saw him. His truck was idling.
The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) will take place on Sunday, August 25th at Barclays Center. Below is a timetable for street closures, construction work, amplified sound and pedestrian access.

6th Avenue from Dean Street to Flatbush will also be closed to traffic partially or in total starting at noon Friday. Some of the time amplified sound is scheduled will be used for intermittent sound checks.
