Three limo/buses are blocking traffic, and the drivers are having a tailgate party, in the northbound turning lane and the bike lane on Dean Street at Vanderbilt Avenue. Two of three are idling.
The buses are associated with one company: Red Carpet Coach. They have come to the arena to drive Jewish groups associated with a Hanukkah celebration of some form during half-time. They said the arena told them to stay nearby, but they were not told about the free standing area on Atlantic Avenue between 6th Avenue and Carlton.
According to a neighbor they have been there for 2 hours. I asked them to leave and they said they would in 1/2 hour. When I told them I was going to call 311 they were unconcerned. They said a number of police cars had already driven by without taking notice.
