"No standing" zone being used for VIP parking

South side of Atlantic Avenue between Flatbush and Sixth
December 20, 2015 - 2:48pm

The "no standing" zone on the south side of Atlantic Avenue between Flatbush Avenue and Sixth Avenue was filled with parked cars today at 1:19PM before a Nets game. The attendant in the yellow jacket, who worked for Sam Schwartz Engineering, told me that the area was being used for VIP parking for the arena. The "no standing" sign is clearly visible at the right.

It's ironic that an employee of the consultant that authored Barclays Center's Transportation Demand Plan is guarding an amenity encouraging people to drive to the arena (including several cars I noticed with out-of-state plates).

This problem was also reported in a separate ticket filed last Sunday.
