For last Babs concert Pacific Street was congested and arena patrons lined up outside 700 Pacific Street garage
The following link is to a video showing how at the end of Barbra Streisand's concert Pacific Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues was clogged by traffic. At the same time a long line of lively arena patrons gathered outside 700 Pacific Street to retrieve their cars from the garage.

As far as I can tell, for nearly every arena event the operations of the loading dock, and of arena operations generally, has been spread out into the at-grade areas called the "pad" next to the loading dock, the satellite broadcast uplink parking lot and often Dean Street between 6th Avenue and 6th Avenue.
Tractor trailers are turning right from Lafayette onto Fort Greene Place to access Barclays Center and Atlantic Center. Due to angle of the corner and narrowness of the street the back end of trailers are going onto sidewalk endangering pedestrians, and both moving and parked vehicles. Fort Greene Place is a residential street, and not designated for truck use. I've observed thid twice in three days.
Security guards at the Atlantic Center Mall were prohibiting drivers exiting garage beneath the mall from making a left turn to exit garage and access Atlantic Avenue. All traffic exiting the garage was directed to turn right, and into the Fort Greene neighborhood where it caused traffic jams and noise from honking of horns along Hanson Place, Ashland Place, Lafayette Avenue, and Fort Greene Place.
A "Concert Logistique" tractor trailer truck was parked for over 1/2 an hour in the left-turn lane at 6th Avenue. According to the driver, he was told to park there by the arena operators. In the 1/2 hour it took to file the 311 complaint a second truck pulled up to wait behind the first. The driver sat in his truck while idling, and waited for instructions that were not forthcoming from the arena.
As I was crossing Flatbush at the 5th Avenue cross walk, with the light, a traffic agent decided to wave traffic through but did not look to see that I and others were already halfway across. I had to leap back to avoid being hit, as the cars were both accelerating and moving fast.
I waited in the middle the avenue for the traffic to stop and felt lucky that it did.
Three cars were parked in the bike lane on Dean Street between 5th Avenue and Flatbush. One, the SUV that's pictured, was also parked on the sidewalk. Cyclists here were forced to weave around these cars and into traffic to avoid them. I spoke with a police office and asked that he tell the driver to move, but he appeared to walk away and do nothing.
