Litter on this block Pacific St. between 4th & 5th
has quadrupled, the patrons throw bottles and cans
in front yards, tree pits and general garbage cans.
My daughters car had vomit, of chunky hotdogs on the
bumper. Now large bags are garbage are tossed around
for fun and left like this on the street.
What happened to encouraging the patrons to use the
subway at the entrance of Barclay center. What
happened to the vigilant police presence we saw the first month?
Idling Rihanna bus on pad with lots of fumes; idling limo on public sidewalk; 3 trucks on Pacific between Carlton and Vanderbilt
Five or six buses are parked on the pad as well as a catering truck and several limos. One is idling. A video of the bus idling for more than 3 minutes can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJuj7okj610
In addition, a limo parked with driver (for who?) projecting into public sidewalk was also idling. A video showing the limo idling for more than 3 minutes can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPY5PUVYO28
A pile of 20 or 30 bags of garbage has been in the satellite uplink parking lot since at least Saturday. The pile is against the wall of the home next door. It is visible from the street through the uncovered entrance on 6th Avenue.
Photos are attached.
A new survey of illegal parking and idling in the vicinity of Barclays Center during the first Nets/Bulls play-off game uncovered some changes to black limo behavior from the last survey. Overall the survey, which covered a smaller geographic area than the last, demonstrated illegal parking and idling conditions continue.
The survey is easy to execute by the volunteers because the locations for illegal parking are so predictable. There were very few unuccuppied hydrants in the area during the survey.
Notably not a single black limo was parked in the official location designated by the Department of Transportation for TLC parking on the south side of Atlantic Avenue from 6th Avenue to Carlton Avenue. A NYPD tow truck was stationed there to clear it of private cars, but it had little motivation to work.
BMW parked in satellite uplink parking lot (photo attached). This same car has been parked in the pad, so apparently there was spill-over from the free parking in the pad for the play-offs.
The link below is to a video which explains the use of the Pad for the first Nets/Bulls play-off game. The staff member was helpful and friendly. He had apparently not been trained the behavior he was describing (the engine of a bus running for 40 or 50 minutes) is illegal.
The Pad is used regularly regardless of the type of event.
Here is a written description of our dialogue:
Here is a survey of illegal parking and idling April 20th between 9:15 and 10:15 PM during the Nets/Bulls play-off game. The geographic location included areas with regular illegal parking to the north and east of Barclays Center. The idling reported below wasn't timed, but in all cases the drivers looked settled in, (i.e.: sleeping or reading).
I did not call 311 for any of the violations below.
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
The May 2013 calendar from Barclays Center has been released. It can be found here.
So far it includes four events. Games will be added if the Nets reach the play-offs.
