Late night work on 535 Carlton with late notice; cement truck down Carlton Avenue

Location: 
535 Carlton and Carlton Avenue generally
When: 
July 27, 2015 - 7:58pm

A cement pour continues to take place tonight at 535 Carlton Avenue.  There was no notice of the late night work before the work took place -- I stumbled on it trying to identify where the noise was coming from.  I documented it at 6:15 PM and again at 7:15 PM.   You can see the fellow with the orange vest sending a text in the video below. A community notice from the Pacific Park Community Liaison, but not the State went out at 6:45.

Unbearable 24-hour/7-day construction noise and disruptions

Location: 
Atlantic Avenue and 6th Avenue
When: 
June 9, 2015 - 2:50am

There are more incident reports- but this is one of the report numbers-- this has become unbearable, we cannot sleep one single night for the past 3 weeks.

Tractors backing up and beeping at every minute of day and night. I cannot work from home doing recordings as I usually do, losing time and money, and sleep over and over--
Forest City Ratner Companies/ Greenland / Pacific Park simply ignores Atlantic Terrace-- an 80-family building facing the intersection of 6th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue.

Idling Truck at Night

Location: 
Near the construction zone on Carlton
When: 
May 11, 2015 - 3:00am

Noise from idling truck woke me up at 3 am at 532 Carlton. I called 311. I went outside but could not see truck on Carlton. The sound was greatly reduced when downstairs, which made me think it was behind. My 3rd floor windows are not blocked by the wall and the sound carries well into them. Also, I could see flashing lights in the construction zone from my window.

Pedestrian crosswalk unsafe for at least 4 months

Location: 
6th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue
When: 
January 22, 2015 - 9:16am

The crosswalk on this intersection has been unsafe and continuously shared between cars, trucks, bikers , construction trucks and pedestrians. The authorities, DOB, or the developers did not even bother painting a new crosswalk in a more safe location, indicating where pedestrians should cross to stay safeand away from cars. Several times a day there are no workers helping and indicating the way.

Fire truck caught in traffic jam on Dean Street again

Location: 
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When: 
December 18, 2014 - 6:30pm

I don't know if the fire truck was on a call or not, but it had its lights flashing.  It turned on its siren once it crossed Vanderbilt.  The time of the filming was between 6:30 and 7:00 pm.
 
The video starts long after the fire truck was caught in traffic on Dean.  The video starts roughly at mid-block.  The traffic was likely backed up to the fire house more than a block away.  All the same the truck takes 3 and 1/2 minutes to cross Vanderbilt Avenue.  
 

Two plus minute delay added to fire truck response time

Location: 
Dean Street between 6th Avenue and Vanderbilt Avenue
When: 
December 8, 2014 - 3:30pm

Fire trucks exiting the fires station on Dean Street do not have any routes to emergencies using the legal direction of traffic which are not impeded by construction closures.  Even some of the routes against traffic are now impeded.  In fact, four of five routes out of the fire station are now impeded by construction.
