At the Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meeting on March 15, Forest City Ratner executive Jane Marshall said the company had identified two garages for remote parking, "focused on Atlantic Avenue" and "right off the BQE [Brooklyn-Queens Expressway]."
That would allow shuttle buses to follow MTA bus routes along Atlantic Avenue and, presumably, do a drop-off along Atlantic Avenue outside the arena rather than along Flatbush Avenue or the narrower lanes of Dean Street or Sixth Avenue.
Where might they be?
After the meeting, Rob Perris, District Manager for Community Board 2, and Jim Vogel, an aide to state Senator Velmanette Montgomery, both Brooklyn residents, gave it their best guess:
- Long Island College Hospital (LICH), now part of Downstate Medical Center
- One Brooklyn Bridge Park, a luxury condo building
But I also thought that Forest City Ratner's MetroTech complex, which at its eastern edge borders Flatbush Avenue (and is near the BQE) would be used. So stay tuned.
