Operating cement truck in loading zone

Dean between Flatbush and 6th
April 5, 2014 - 5:10pm

A cement truck associated with B2 work located itself in a no standing zone on the south side of Dean Street this afternoon.  I videotaped it operating in front of homes for over 3 minutes at 5:10 and then left to do some shopping.    It was at the location when I arrived.
I came back around 35 minutes later and NYPD was in the process of asking it to move away. The truck must have been idling next to homes for 35 minutes, and standing in a no standing zone in an area already seriously constrained by construction on two sides of the street.

Backhoe loads dirt adjacent to pedestrian path without a safety net

B2 and entrance to Barclays arena
April 5, 2014 - 2:40pm

A dump truck has been aligned with the narrow channel assigned for pedestrians to pass by B2 during construction.  The dump truck is being filled with dirt and concrete by a backhoe.  There is no netting protecting pedestrians who pass by the truck.  In the range of unsafe work practices, this one seems pretty high.
Because this is occuring right at the Barclays Center entrance, Miley Cyrus's staff is standing by watching.   Fans are already gathering in the vicinity.  Is the contractor not a Miley Cyrus fan? 

Cable leading to Barclays lot lies on sidewalk

Dean Street near Vanderbilt
April 5, 2014 - 11:30am

A cable has fallen in the way of pedestrians on Dean Street near Vanderbilt Avenue.  I called 311 about an hour ago. They put me through to Con Ed who put it on emergency status and promised a response within about an hour.    
The cable does not appear live, but i can't be certain.  The cable extends from the buildings on the south side of the street, up to the top of light posts, and across the street to a light post on the north side of the street.  Originally it kept going to the construction site.

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.
