Two additional street trees damaged as a byproduct of street narrowed by construction fence

Location: 
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When: 
January 30, 2015 - 4:00pm

I've attached photos of two additional trees damaged since the construction fence was installed around block 1129. Vehicles need to pull up on the sidewalk in order to load or unload, or if an emergency vehicle needs to pass.  They pull up on top of tree beds as though they are the same as sidewalks.  
 

Barclays Center uses commercial space as loading area; parks on sidewalk

Location: 
6th Avenue at Pacific Street
When: 
January 22, 2015 - 3:40pm

It is not just local businesses that are having to park on the sidewalk right now.  Barlays Center removed "unneeded" items from the arena using the Sugar Factory as an exit.  A truck was illegally parked on the sidewalk in order to make the job easier.
 

Cars that appear to be associated with arena are now parking in Satellite Uplink Lot

Location: 
Satellite Uplink Lot
When: 
January 22, 2015 - 3:40pm

Arena and/or Nets executives regularly used the Pad (and sometimes the sidewalk in front of it) to park their cars.  There are still non-construction passenger vehicles parked in the area that once was the Pad, but it appears the executives have now also been given permission to use the Satellite Uplink Lot.   
 

No snow shoveling on MTA property sidewalks eight years after project approval

Location: 
Atlantic Avenue, Vanderbilt Avenue, Pacific Street, 6th Avenue
When: 
January 24, 2015 - 4:47pm

The State still hasn't managed to find a way to clear the snow from the project's sidewalks 8 years after the project was approved.  The wet snow from today is likely to freeze tonight creating black ice and difficult footing.  A great many of the remaining sidewalks are currently closed for construction.  The combination obviously makes the area undesirable to walk through and about.  The sidewalks that are cleared are on the arena block and the east side of 6th Avenue.
 

3rd incident this week of truck getting stuck on Carlton Avenue after hitting tree

Location: 
Carlton Avenue between Dean and Pacific Streets
When: 
January 23, 2015 - 8:15pm

For the 3rd time this week a truck got stuck under the tree on Carlton Avenue.  This morning the truck wasn't just too tall, it was also too wide.  According to the resident who forwarded me the information, the truck hit the tree because of its height, and the green wall because of its width.  There are fresh scratches on the green wall across from the tree.

Construction fencing on Carlton creates ongoing unsafe condition

Location: 
Carlton Avenue between Dean and Pacific Streets
When: 
January 22, 2015 - 1:15pm

The construction fencing on Carlton Avenue is pinching the street too much and creating an ongoing unsafe condition.  Taller vehicles like trucks and buses cannot pass through the Avenue without hitting a tree.  The tree is old and beautiful and should be preserved.  The damage is both to the tree and the vehicles that pass.  
 

Pedestrian crosswalk unsafe for at least 4 months

Location: 
6th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue
When: 
January 22, 2015 - 9:16am

The crosswalk on this intersection has been unsafe and continuously shared between cars, trucks, bikers , construction trucks and pedestrians. The authorities, DOB, or the developers did not even bother painting a new crosswalk in a more safe location, indicating where pedestrians should cross to stay safeand away from cars. Several times a day there are no workers helping and indicating the way.

Tree damaged on Carlton Avenue/Avenue closed without notice

Location: 
Carlton Avenue from Dean to Pacific Streets
When: 
January 19, 2015 - 10:33pm

On Monday morning contractors associated with Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park apparently hit a tree on Carlton Avenue.  I was called by a Carlton Avenue resident who forwarded me the following text and the attached photographs.  I am sure the resident will speak to someone in oversight if they wish.

Light from Barclays Center Parking Lot Floods My Apartment and Bedroom

Location: 
mid-block on Dean Street
When: 
December 18, 2014 - 8:12pm

A new light has been installed inside the Barclays Center parking lot. The light is pointed straight toward my building. At first I did not notice it. But, then, I opened my eyes. Light was flooding my bedroom. All night long it illuminates room. I could barely sleep. The light is so intense I can cast a crisp shadow on my back wall (see attached photo).

Please, remove it as soon as possible, or point it towards some other helpless soul to keep them awake all night.
