From Atlantic Yards Watch: illegal parking continues around arena during events

The parking problems around the Barclays Center don't go away, even if fewer complaints are being filed to Atlantic Yards watch.

Here's one regarding the Thursday night basketball game:
Illegal Parking in all the usual spots
Submitted by ParkSloper on October 18, 2013 - 2:18pm
5th Ave between St. Mark's and Flatbush; Dean and Bergn between 5th and Flatbush
October 17, 2013 - 7:15pm
Thursday night during the beginning of the Miami Heat/Nets game:
Due to technical difficulties I could not post several 311 complaints on here at the time they were made. Nor was I able to make all the 311 complaints I was ready to make. However, there were many cars parked illegally at 7:15 and 8:15 on Fifth Avenue, Flatbush, Dean, and Sixth Avenue by Flatbush, mostly limos. These were observed in two separate 5 minute walks home and do not constitute a survey.
The point is that there is rampant, continuous violation of the "No Parking" and "No Standing" and no standing at hydrants (after sundown) laws and it did not take a formal survey to observe this.
Here's one regarding last night's Pearl Jam concert:

1 car and 4 vans, most of them beige Fords with tinted windows, parked in posted "No Standing Anytime" zone. Common problem during Barclays events.
