Here is a video of a large truck with a container manuevering to get into the former satellite parking lot in the B15 footprint: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyDwnFP8USQ
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.
A VIP bus illegally parked in a travel lane on Dean Street for a long time today. It is my understanding the bus was parked in the turning lane for much of the day. This turning lane is often tasked for use by Barclays Center and construction.
Presumably the bus is associated with one of the teams playing tonight, bu the card in the window says Cincinnati Bearcats -- a footbal team.
There is a dangerous attractive nuisance at the 550 Vanderbilt site. A door has been left open into the site approximately where the water main break was today, apparently.
The door gives entrance to the entire construction site. Immediately inside the door is a large pit. The workers on the 550 Vanderbilt building are protected from the pit by a warning sign and a streamer of sorts. The pit is readily accessible from the street, though.

Dean Street jammed with cars; Noise from traffic increased by wall; Carlton Avenue closed without notice
Carlton Avenue was closed without notice last night and as a result Dean Street was turned into a traffic jam. It is now a regular occurrence that Dean Street from Carlton to Vanderbilt is jammed.
At some points in the week the movement across Vanderbilt Avenue on Dean Street is failed as an intersection because cars take minutes to get through the intersection.
Forwarded to me by email (and posted to AYW with permission) from a resident with windows facing south to Dean Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues.
"Last night, like many nights (every night?), I was kept awake by many loud construction vehicles roaring down DEAN street from 1 am onwards. I notified 311 via mobile app, which did not have a category that suited this complaint, btw. I chose the closest thing I could find. PD response was (explitive), as expected. Here is the reference for you, for what it is worth."
Pacific Street between 6th and Carlton was made yet more challenging today because of a water line break in the sidewalk outside 666 Pacific Street. Pacific was flooded (as much by construction workers, equipment and DEP than by water), and the sidewalks were closed on both sides of the street. Actually, they apparently would have been anyway since construction was occurring in the 666 Pacific Street sidewalk.
Truck idling on the sidewalk blocking safe passage for pedestrians. Pedestrians with strollers were forced to use the road with on-coming traffic (see attached photos).

Due to work in the street at the Dean and Vanderbilt intersection, Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt was closed today. According to multiple workers involved with the work, it was closed all day and re-opened around 2:15.
According to the workers, the work being executed was electrical work in the street for 550 Vanderbilt. The work was not Con Ed. There was no notice of this work, or the closure of the street by either the Pacific Park developers or the State.
