Why were buses idling for hours outside the Barclays Center this morning?

Buses presumably associated with the Barclays Center were idling on Sixth Avenue for hours, according to photos and video. (Note: there's no direct evidence regarding the buses, but it is not unusual for buses associated with the arena to idle nearby, and four days of wrestling events ended last night.)

A video posted by resident Wayne Bailey, shot after he returned from a run, indicates that two buses idled for more than 30 minutes on Sixth Avenue just below Pacific Street.

But the AY Cam trained on Sixth Avenue shows buses idling on Sixth Avenue above Pacific, starting at about 3:20 am, and lasting through about 4:05 am. It shows (the same?) buses idling again on Sixth below Pacific, starting at 4:20 am, and lasting through about 5:45 am.

When I know more, I'll update this. But I have to imagine that, when more people move in nearby, there will be many more complaints.
