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

Outside Nets-Knicks game, video shows cars honking, using Pacific Street sidewalk ; also, ESPN bus in TV lot had generator running

Rampant honking. Idling on the sidewalk. Using the sidewalk for U-turns. Even a driver taking a leak on the sidewalk (at about 14:50 of the video).

That was all part of the scene Tuesday, Dec. 11, outside the Newswalk parking garage at 700 Pacific Street, just east of the Barclays Center, host of the Nets-Knicks game.

City officials, who acknowledge problems with the parking garage--potential overcrowding, and price inconsistency--apparently haven't stepped up enough.

A bus in the TV lot

Is the ESPN bus in the satellite uplink parking lot idling illegally, as the first video below suggests, or, more likely just using its generator--because the arena failed to hook it up--as noted on Atlantic Yards Watch?

As further noted on AYW by Peter Krashes:
The Community Liaison reached out to let me know he did not receive any messages last night. I left my message on his work phone. The number he would like me to use in the future is 347-834-3957. He also receives emails on an ongoing basis during the night.
AYW incident reports are forwarded automatically and instantaneously as they are filed to the email of the Community Liaison, (plus many of those in oversight), so ironically I would have had better results last night filing an incident report on this website.
The bus was onsite from roughly 3 in the afternoon and because it did not appear to fit well into the lot, its front end stuck out the gate. That made it unmissable not just for those like myself walking by, but presumably also for the people who work at the arena. That condition must have existed for at least 8 1/2 hours. The generator was certainly running for the duration of the event, if not more. The community liaison informed me he is looking into the matter.

The use of a generator is not acceptable in the uplink lot. [Below is video filmed at 8:35 PM.]
