From Tracy Collins: The Last Two on the Block (time-lapse photos)

Reposting time-lapse video and verbatim text below from photographer Tracy Collins:

The Last Two on the block from tracy collins on Vimeo.



6th Avenue near Pacific Street
Prospect Heights
Brooklyn, New York

Demolition of 636 Pacific Street (aka The Atlantic Arts Building, aka former Goldstein residence) and 24-6th Avenue (aka The Spalding Building) on October 14, 2010 around 1pm. These are the last two buildings on the block of the Barclays Center Arena of Atlantic Yards. The arena would be bounded by Atlantic Avenue, Flatbush Avenue, Dean Street and 6th Avenue.

This view is looking south on 6th Avenue; Pacific Street is the near intersection, and Dean Street is the far intersection. Pacific Street used to continue right/west past 6th Avenue to Flatbush Avenue, but was "demapped" to make way for the arena. To the right (west) would be the rear end of the arena.
