Multiple questionable activities associated with 535 Carlton Monday and Tuesday

Vicinity of Dean and Carlton Avenues

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.

Rowdy crowds after Islanders/Rangers game include profane chants and two fights

Arena plaza, 39 Fifth AVenue

As fans exited the arena after the Rangers/Islanders game, many stayed on the plaza to chant for the Islanders, including a group (recorded on video on Vimeo    https://vimeo.com/147749969) led by a man beating a drum.  At :50 in the video they begin chanting "F- the Rangers" and giving the finger.  This went on for some time and was more or less brought to an end by a fight involving several men.  A group of police officers tamed the atmosphere moments afterward.
