Wrestlemania buses are moved to block 1129 where they idle, then run their generators

Location: 
Block 1129/Pacific Street
When: 
December 16, 2012 - 10:00am

The crew buses -- I was told the living quarters of the crew -- for Wrestlemania were moved this morning from the pad next to the arena where they were apparently parked overnight to block 1129/Pacific Street around 10 this morning.   When they arrived they idled for significantly more than 3 minutes. (see video below). These are the same buses refered to in this incident report: http://www.atlanticyardswatch.net/node/1085.
 
When I spoke to the drivers/crew leaving the buses they told me they had been sent by the arena to this location.  The noise I continued to hear after they left the bus was the generators of the buses powering AC, etc.  There are around 14 crew members distributed across the 7 buses.  The buses are living quarters.  The buses for the talent are below grade inside the loading dock.  Does this mean the wrestlers slept in the arena last night?
 
I spoke to the security manning the loading dock this morning.  According to them the problem is the loading dock area is "crammed with stuff."  So they sent the buses to Pacific.
 
The buses are still in this location at 2 PM.  The generators are still running.  I don't know if the crew is inside.

I sent a text to the Community Liaison for the arena at around 10 AM asking if locating the buses on Pacific is part of a plan.
