At the Barclays Center for the Rock Hall: ceremony, headlines, protest, and the usual neighborhood incursions

So, there was an induction ceremony at the Barclays Center Friday night for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

There was spectacle inside, and there was spectacle--a protest from the Brooklyn Anti-Gentrification Network--outside. (The network began last year.) And, as noted on Atlantic Yards Watch, there were continued incursions into the neighborhood.

New York Times had New Rock Hall of Fame Class Confronts a Familiar Identity Crisis and EW offered 8 highlights from Friday's induction ceremony

Limos and car services occupying bus stops, No Standing, and No Parking zones, with some idling at hydrants and others blocking crosswalks.




A delivery truck parked in the street, blocking pedestrians and traffic, on Dean Street just west of Sixth Avenue, with the driver eating at wheel.
 

A guy wearing event tags smoking outside a Dean Street house where there's actually a sign asking people not to smoke (because arena workers so often do so).
