Barclays Center truck on Dean Street and Carlton Avenue

Location: 
Dean Street and Carlton Avenue
When: 
March 24, 2014 - 7:30pm

A "Stage Call" truck passed through narrow Dean Street and turned left on Carlton Avenue tonight. Dean Street and Carlton Avenue are not legal truck routes.
The truck was headed to block 1129 where it apparently sat and idled until soon after I documented the idling.  At around 9:45 it left block 1129.

Many of the project's sidewalks were promptly and pretty well cleared by a truck with a plow following the storm last Thursday night and Friday morning.  But someone dropped the ball on the north sidewalk of Pacific Street between Carlton and 6th Avenue, and especially the sidewalk corners and crosswalks of the Pacific Street/Carlton Avenue intersection.  
 

Red Carpet Coaches block turning lane and bike lane on Dean Street

Dean Street at Vanderbilt Avenue
When: 
December 3, 2013 - 8:52pm

Three limo/buses are blocking traffic, and the drivers are having a tailgate party, in the northbound turning lane and the bike lane on Dean Street at Vanderbilt Avenue.  Two of three are idling.
The buses are associated with one company: Red Carpet Coach.  They have come to the arena to drive Jewish groups associated with a Hanukkah celebration of some form during half-time.  They said the arena told them to stay nearby, but they were not told about the free standing area on Atlantic Avenue between 6th Avenue and Carlton.
