There were multiple problems with construction associated with 535 Carlton Avenue on Monday night and Tuesday morning.
1). As has already been posted on AYW, late Monday afternoon no parking flyers were hung on approximately 10 street trees on Carlton between Dean and Bergen Streets. The flyers banned parking on both sides of the street starting at 7 AM Tuesday morning. They did not provide any contact information so it was impossible to know on whose behalf the parking was being removed.
"No parking Tuesday" signs appeared sometime Monday afternoon, thought we were supposed to have 48 hours? Alternate-side is suspended tomorrow so how are people supposed to know? Also - PLEASE STOP USING TREES FOR SIGNS
A full nine cars on either side of Dean St, mostly idling in the NO STOPPING zone and some parked in the NO STANDING zone. Traffic compromised.
Bus stops on 5th Ave, Flatbush, and two on Bergen all either totally or partially blocked by idling and parked cars.
Several cars parked, others idling at hydrants.
None ticketed. All reported to 311.
At 915 did observe numerous illegal parkers without summonses along 5th Avenue and side streets, including two cars actually parked in the traffic lane of Dean St. between 5th and and Flatbush, with another one idling. This is a three lane road with one lane marked "No Standing Any Time". Cars were parked in the No Standing zone as well as the middle lane. The cars turning from 5th were compromised by an idling limo in the crosswalk at 5th Avenue and Dean.
Made a half dozen 311 reports.
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.
