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

The view from Dean Street: early-morning construction; the demolition of 636 Pacific Street

City zoning prohibits sports facilities from being built within 200 feet of residences, but that zoning was overridden by the Empire State Development Corporation in the case of Atlantic Yards.

So those on the south side of Dean Street between Flatbush and Sixth avenues have some bird's-eye views of the site.

First, a video shot at about 7:15 am today by a neighborhood resident.

Below, a photo of 636 Pacific Street, the last building in the footprint, shot yesterday by Battle of Brooklyn documentary filmmaker Mike Galinsky.
