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

After arena paid fine for noise violation, Barclays Center concert noise still penetrating residences; Rihanna said to be as loud as Swedish House Mafia/Sensation

Though last week an affiliate of arena developer Forest City Ratner paid a $3200 fine for excess noise from a Swedish House Mafia concert (after previous complaints about noise from Sensation and Jay-Z concerts), the Barclays Center has apparently not fixed the problem.

Atlantic Yards Watch cites two 311 complaints and seven phone calls/texts regarding last night's Rihanna concert:
“Rihanna is as loud as SHM or Sensations!!”
“Are you f****** kidding me, why can’t the police do something?”
“YIKES!! Why are they starting so late?”
“It woke us up!”
“Guess they haven’t done anything to minimize the noise!”
“Passed midnight and they’re still going, when will it end?”
“Why are these noisy types of concerts allowed on a Sunday nights?”
Rihanna's second concert will be tomorrow night, just in time for the Atlantic Yards Quality of Life meeting.
