Bass Audible from Arena During Concert

Location: 
Dean Street and Flatbush Ave
When: 
September 30, 2012 - 9:28pm

During last night's concert the bass could be heard and felt inside our apartment building on Dean Street and along street level. We didn't notice this as much Saturday night. This is disconcerting, as sound should not be audible -- let alone felt -- from a brand new, state-of-the-art arena.

Helicopters circling overhead

Location: 
in the air above Prospect Heights neighborhood, St. Marks Ave
When: 
September 28, 2012 - 9:00pm

Multiple loud helicopters were circling over the neighborhood all evening on the night of the Jay Z concert, flying low and loud. It felt like we were in a war zone. This is unacceptable in a residential neighborhood, particularly at night.

Work on landmarked sidewalk apparently w/o a landmarks permit

Location: 
Vanderbilt Avenue between Pacific and Dean Streets
When: 
September 21, 2012 - 9:43am

On behalf of Barclays Center, working in coordination with Atlantic Yards contractors, and timed to be complete to facilitate arena operations, Verizon is currently laying fiber optic cable under a landmarked sidewalk by digging a trench along its full length.  
 

Truck violations increase while enforcement stays away

Over the last month changes to the way truck deliveries take place at Barclays Center have increased meaningfully the number of violations of NYC law, the Amended Memorandum of Environmental Commitments and Barclays Center Truck Delivery Rules and Requirements.  With apparently no enforcement taking place, the consequence is a wide range of adverse impacts on the community: trucks idling for long periods; use of unauthorized truck routes; and blocking of bus lanes, bike lanes, no standing zones and travel lanes.   Travel and the quality of life on Dean Street between Flatbush and 6th Avenue is particularly affected.

Location: 
620 Atlantic Ave. - SE & NE corners of 6th & PAcific St
When: 
September 7, 2012 - 9:11am

I received a call from NYPD Officer Fraiser from the 88th (they have jurisdiction because the hydrants are on the north side of Pacific St & the cars parked on the sidewalk are @ the NE corner of Pacific St & 6th Ave) (I don't know if spelling of her name is correct) @ 9:14am, referencing the two 311 reports C1-1-780947617 and C1-1-780947655 she asked me, “Where are the construction workers supposed to park? Are these the construction workers working on the stadium? I have a question where do you want them to park their car?

Buiding Shaking at 618 Dean Street

Location: 
618 Dean Street
When: 
August 30, 2012 - 3:12pm

For the past 3-4 days the building has been shaking due to construction work conducted on the other side of the street (Dean st between Carlton st and Vanderbilt ave). I noticed some cracks at the top of our facade and fear for the safety and structural integrity of our building.
