Tour Bus parked in front of 560 Dean St. - driver in relaxes in beach chair on the sidewalk

Location: 
560 Dean St.
When: 
June 20, 2014 - 2:00pm

Driver of a tour bus who brought visitors to the VIP Barclays tour spent a couple of hours relaxing in shade with his bus parked on Dean St. close to the intersection of Carlton, blocking a private driveway. He said that he received no direction about where to park his bus during the arena tour. This is the second time recently I've seen a bus parked in the same spot, driver of the previous bus refused to say he was bringing visitors to the Barclays arena.

Barclays Center truck on Dean Street and Carlton Avenue

Location: 
Dean Street and Carlton Avenue
When: 
March 24, 2014 - 7:30pm

A "Stage Call" truck passed through narrow Dean Street and turned left on Carlton Avenue tonight. Dean Street and Carlton Avenue are not legal truck routes.
The truck was headed to block 1129 where it apparently sat and idled until soon after I documented the idling.  At around 9:45 it left block 1129.
Video of truck driving down narrow Dean Street without a lot of room to spare during a church service:

The banners come back on Dean and 6th

Location: 
Dean Street and 6th Avenue
When: 
March 20, 2014 - 7:24pm

Banners for Maimonides Medical Center/the Nets have been posted on Dean Street and 6th Avenue.  The banners run from Dean Playground to Flatbush on Dean Street and from Dean Street to Atlantic Avenue on 6th Avenue.  
We have been told previously that banners would no longer be put in these locations.  Maimonides Medical Center is the "official hospital and team physicians" for the Brooklyn Nets.  Dean Street is a residential street.  It is against the spirit of NYC law to advertise on the perimeter of a playground.
