During hockey game, lay-by lane across from Shake Shack is filled with parked cars, mostly limos, and an Islanders team SUV. Is this the purpose for which it was created? There is also a bus stop in the lay-by lane, and the bus was forced to stop in the middle of the road. At 10:15, approximately six more cars were waiting there, double parked.
At several times during the evening cars with drivers blocked crosswalks while they parked or idled. Photo attached is corner of Bergen and Flatbush. Pedestrians forced to walk in traffic lane to get around such cars.
Most hydrants in area filled, also bus stop, No Standing, and No Parking zones. All reported to 311.
SOme idling at hydrants (mostly limos) . Not all with drivers inside.
Some blocking croswalks.
Delivery truck parked. Driver eating at wheel. Barclays ushers in area. BLocking pedestrian and traffic lanes.
Dozens of cars parked at hydrants and in No Parking Anytime zones as well as in marked off zone on Bergen by Flatbush (at Pintchiks). Concert at Barclays.
Called several into 311.
The turning lane and the area surrounding the MPT on the north side of Dean Street between 6th and Flatbush were retasked by the arena for parking during the event on Sunday.
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.
Several cars, including a TLC licensed Chevy Suburban, were parked with the assistance of Sam Schwartz traffic managers in the No Standing zone west of the MPT area. This area is filled during the day with contstruction workers' cars. Is this a permit situation with the DOT? An arrangement with the city?
Part of the design of Barclays includes an elevator-accessed underground VIP parking area.
Cars parked in usual spots: 2 in No Standing zone at 446C Dean, 2 stopped in No Stopping zone across the street, 2 parked in bus stop at 429 Bergen, different cars at different times at hydrant at 39 5th Ave and TLC licensed van at hydrant at 35 St. Mark's Avenue.
Also on Saturday night , many cars parked at Woodland on 74 6th Avenue at the hydrant and in the No Parking zone and one in the No Parking zone/crosswalk at 6th and St. Mark's.
Some of these were reported to 311. Photos below.
Not one but three cars parked IN THE TRAFFIC LANE by the former Triangle Sports, which is clearly marked "No Parking" (duh- there is only a single traffic lane there; all northbound traffic had to travel in the southbound lane) as well as a hydrant. See photo below. One was a yellow cab, one a white stretch limo (NY 21758 BP), and one a big black SUV actually straddling the crosswalk, on the Dean St. corner. (See 2nd picture, below, showing how it blocked traffic coming up Dean as well as pedestrians).
Here is a report from the same resident who forwarded the information that formed the catalyst for the closed/resolved AYW incident report #http://www.atlanticyardswatch.net/node/1798.
