The following photos show the locations and strategies of Atlantic Yards construction workers who park illegally in the vicinity of the project. All of these photos were taken between 1 pm and 2 pm on Thursday, July 7th.
Construction workers apparently piggyback on the illegal parking of city employees in the area of the Barclays Center which happens to be virtually across the street from the 78th Precinct. There is apparently little or no enforcement of parking regulations in the vicinity of the 78th Precinct by the NYPD. A more complete description of the problem can be found here.
Is it a funeral director or an iron worker? If it is a construction worker he or she has found an inventive way to get around parking regulations. This car was parked in a no standing zone on 6th Avenue immediately adjacent to the Barclays Center site.
This is a rear view of the same car which is sprayed black. An iron worker union sticker also appears in the rear windshield.
Construction worker parking blocks the B65 bus lane on Dean Street at Flatbush Avenue daily, adding a hurdle for passengers trying to board the bus. The construction worker car parked behind the bus is from New Jersey.
In a relatively recent development construction workers have apparently expanded a lane closure associated with Atlantic Yards construction on Atlantic Avenue to make additional room for parking.
Construction worker cars in a no standing zone along Pacific Street. The condition on Pacific has improved somewhat from the late spring. At that time cars were parked three lanes deep including on the sidewalk and in the travel lane.
This view of Pacific Street toward the arena construction entrance on 6th Avenue includes illegally parked cars.
One of a number of construction worker cars intermingling with 78th Precinct employee cars on 6th Avenue. They all park with two wheels on the sidewalk. Many construction workers leave their vests or hats visible through their windshields.
A homemade sign doesn't deter construction workers from parking on 6th Avenue. That is an iron workers local sticker on the side window of the car in the left of the photo.
Thanks to illegally parked 78th Precinct employee cars and Barclays Center construction workers cars there is often quite a squeeze for pedestrians on 6th Avenue.
The 78th Precinct employee and Barclays Center construction worker cars are all parked illegally on the 6th Avenue sidewalk shown here. According to Transportation Alternatives, even the few 78th Precinct employees parked with legal placards are not legally allowed to park this way on sidewalks.
