Below is a recap of Tuesday the 19th's problems on Dean Street, 6th and Pacific. The report is based on two visits, one at 1:30 PM and one at 8:45 PM. Most of the problems were related to the circus, but construction related to the work on 6th Avenue and at B2 is contributing.
I am a member of the Prospect Place Block Association (Carlton Avenue to Underhill Avenue).
I noticed that last Friday night (3/15) at approximately 9:30pm, there were virtually unbroken lines of double parked (empty) cars on Dean Street on the two blocks stretching from Sixth Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue and on St. Marks Avenue between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues. I also think that I saw someone who was acting as a “parking attendant”
Trucks idling in multiple locations due to construction and arena deliveries today, documented mostly between 12 and 1:

A combination of undisclosed construction work on 6th Avenue, general arena deliveries, and the arrival of Ringling Bros. caused a lot of infractions of NYC regulations near the arena today, and certainly demonstrated the limits of the capacity of the arena to receive deliveries. The construction work which involved the closing of a public sidewalk and the operation of a crane over a public roadway wasn't included in the most recent construction alert.

Six trucks are parked in the Pad tonight. The trailers are apparently down below. Why aren't they in the Navy Yard as promised?
During Nets home game on 2/22/2013 one of the many illegally parked black cars was a stretch limo right in the bus stop on Bergen Street across from Bark Hot Dogs. The length of the vehicle was an issue for cars turning right from Flatbush Ave, not the mention forcing the MTA busses to stop in the middle of the street and cause Bergen Street traffic to back up across Flatbush Ave.
311 report filed. Vehicle eventually moved. According to 311:
"The Police Department responded to the complaint and took action to fix the condition."
A street light is out on Dean Street between 6th and Carlton. It is adjacent to Dean Playground. It is roughly across the street from Temple of Restoration.
