Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

On Dean Street, block party, block not-party, and some new brew

The Dean Street Block Association held a block party yesterday afternoon between Sixth and Carlton avenues, though the activities (food, stoop-less sale, face painting, more) were held east of the first five houses, which would be part of the Atlantic Yards footprint.

Turning the camera around

The view west of Sixth Avenue on Dean Street, however, looks like less of a party. The construction equipment was quiet, but, as the Footprint Gazette can tell you, that was just a respite.

A new brew

Atlantic Yards has spawned much creativity in terms of music, writing, photography, art, and filmmaking. Add to that list Dean Street resident Nick Friend's Shadow of the Yard beer, a vanilla-flavored brown ale that was spotted at the block party. The palatable brew is produced in limited quantities unsuitable for a sports facility.
