Post finds outrage over Barclays Center roof laser targeting monument; arena operators say it's for one weekend (but don't apologize); evidence of another hit: Wyckoff Gardens
“Anything that distracts from that should not be allowed. You wouldn’t want to see a laser on the Vietnam Monument in Washington," Ruth Goldstein, founding chairwoman of the Fort Greene Park Conservancy, told the newspaper. Council Member Letitia James wasn't pleased.
Arena operators, at least to the Post, weren't apologizing, explaining that the two lasers were just for the opening weekend “We received the proper permits from the FAA, and we are delighted to celebrate the opening of Barclays Center,” said spokesman Barry Baum.
