Barclays Center pre-paid parking is still not ready; no comment from Forest City Ratner

I wrote August 1 how, despite promises in May from a Forest City Ratner consultant that arena event-goers would find prepaid parking "seamless with the Barclays Center software," arena operators had sold hundreds of thousands of tickets to upcoming events without being able to offer that option.

I also reported that, according to a phone representative of Click and Park, which offers prepaid parking for venues like Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field, its web page linked to the new Brooklyn arena would be ready by August 6.

It wasn't. I called August 7, and was told it should be ready by today. It's not, though the day is long. I couldn't get a comment from either Forest City Ratner nor its consultant Sam Schwartz Engineering.

In fact, the Barclays Center Parking web site is somewhat behind a previous iteration, which had a "Buy Parking" button.

BarclaysParking.com in previous weeks
BarclaysParking.com today, with no "Buy Parking" button
