From Tracy Collins: shrouded buildings in the sunset on Pacific Street

6th Avenue Sunset from Tracy Collins on Vimeo.

The two large remaining buildings in the arena block footprint are former industrial buildings that, in the past decade, were renovated into market-rate housing. Now they're being demolished, and they're shrouded in netting and scaffolding.

Remember the phrase "The Greenest Building is the One Already Built"? Not here.

The official description
6th Avenue between Atlantic Avenue & Pacific Street
Prospect Heights
Brooklyn, New York

This time lapse was shot at sunset on August 30, 2010, facing south on 6th Avenue.

The two buildings on the right (l to r) are 24 6th Avenue (aka The Spalding Building) and 636 Pacific Street (aka The Atlantic Arts Building and the former home of Daniel Goldstein and family). They are the 2 last buildings standing in the footprint of the Barclays Center Arena of the 22-acre Atlantic Yards project of Forest City Ratner.

The Barclays Center Arena is being built to the west (right) of 6th Avenue. This stretch of 6th Avenue would be along the rear of the arena.
