Mumford and Son buses idle on pad

Location: 
The pad next to 620 Atlantic Avenue
When: 
February 12, 2013 - 12:20pm
311: 
C1-1-826745611

When I passed by the Pad the first time (at 12:18 PM) there were four tour buses in it.  One left soon afterwards, leaving three.  All appeared to be idling.  I filmed the first video linked below at that point and filed the 311 complaint.  When I passed by a second time at 2:00 PM they were still at it.  I filmed the second video linked below at that point.
 
It is possible the buses were not "idling,"  but rather they are equipped with generators to keep the interior warm and it was the generators that were running.
 
Each video shows the buses in the pad, then the camera moves across the Artbridge murals as I walk the length of the Pad.  The buses are in a line.  
 
The sound of each video is the sound of the engine or generator of each bus.  The noise increases and reduces as I pass down the line.  I stop at the bus set furthest into the Pad and time it for 3 minutes.
