The Prominent taxi company has set up an illegal limo parking cue on the residential portion of Fort Greene Pl. About 12 limos are double parked and idling.
Flyers have been stapled to three street trees across from the arena and B2 by John Civetta & Sons. The concern is damage to the street trees. This 311 complaint is a DSNY complaint. I also filed a second complaint for damage to the trees with the Parks Department.
Multiple yellow NYCON concrete trucks used Bergen Street between Vanderbilt Avenue and Flatbush Avenue this afternoon to deliver concrete for the foundation of Building B2 on Dean Street between Flatbush and 6th Avenues. Bergen Street is an MTA bus route, has a busy bike lane, is a residential street, is adjacent to the well-used Dean Street Playground, passes the 78th Precinct House, and is not a designated NYC truck route, as are Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues.
