There were multiple problems on Monday morning. A number were associated with an asphalt/tar job at 535 Carlton. This job was unrelated to the removal of the construction fence around 535 Carlton and could have been scheduled at another time.
On Wednesday and Thursday of this week there block and my apartment we filled with a foul & toxic smell. There was no work being done in our building and the smell increased upon leaving the apartment, coming from the corner of Dean & Carlton.
For the past two days, while sitting at my desk at the front of the building, there is a vibration felt through my keyboard .... once again there is no construction going on in our building.
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.
The documentation in this report: http://www.atlanticyardsreport.blogspot.com/2015/11/video-dust-from-535-... dust in the same relative area as the incident in AYW incident report: http://www.atlanticyardswatch.net/node/1801
What work was discontinued by the State, (the discontinuance of which apparently provided the rationale for AYW to close as resolved the incident on November 17th)?
Who specifically from oversight was on the site at the time of this incident, and how/when did they become aware of it?
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.
A resident on Dean forwarded me this complaint and the attached photo. She writes: "I walked by this morning and thought, "What are we breathing?"
The photo shows dust emanating from the construction site. It rises in a plume and appears to blow southwest toward homes. According to the witness, the source was drilling which stirred dust into the air.
The location was the 535 Carlton Avenue construction site.

Concrete delivery blocks Dean/Vanderbilt intersection; information about work couldn't be more limited
A large delivery of concrete was made to the 550 Vanderbilt site using an entrance to the site in the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection rather than the Pacific Street entrance. To use the entrance the trucks had to be backed through the gate, requiring the closure of the Vanderbilt/Dean intersection with the use of flaggers. A concrete truck was also witnessed entering the Pacific Street entrance from Vanderbilt via the north bound traffic lane.
