MTV's Video Music Awards takes neighborhood by storm

 

On August 25, the MTV Video Music Awards and its red carpet landed with a wallop in the neighborhood around Barclays Center.  The video to the right shows some of the volume and scale of the red carpet event, which was staged next to homes at the Dean Street and 6th Avenue intersection.  At the end of the video, Miley Cyrus steps from her limo, giving a preview of her later performance on stage.  The crowds lining the street are comprised largely of young people brought in by MTV, not residents from the block.

While other events have spilled out of the arena onto public sidewalks and streets, the VMAs were the first to receive permission from the City to close streets and sidewalks in the neighborhoods nearby.    The entire setting -  from its crowds to the facades of the townhouses nearby - were carefully stage-managed for the camera and attending media.  The experience for local residents went far beyond the red carpet walk seen on t.v. It included: five consecutive nights of after hours outdoors construction work, filming footage prior to the event, live performances with amplified sound, a projection screen with lights, six back-up generators, and a shipped-in cast apparently numbering between one and two thousand people.  

Street closure, construction and amplified sound timetable for the MTV Video Music Awards

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) will take place on Sunday, August 25th at Barclays Center. Below is a timetable for street closures, construction work, amplified sound and pedestrian access. The list is based on information provided by the 78th Precinct  Community Council and the 78th Precinct.  It has been updated to include detail about amplified sound and viewer pens.  
 
6th Avenue from Dean Street to Flatbush will also be closed to traffic partially or in total starting at noon Friday.  Some of the time amplified sound is scheduled will be used for intermittent sound checks.  
 
Access inside the restricted area for residents will be allowed with ID.  Guests of residents can gain access by being met at a checkpoint by their host or by being escorted to their destination by security.
