As Fashion Rocks approaches, street closings (to cars) begin around arena

Dean Street now closed
Dean Street between Flatbush Avenue and Sixth Avenue is now closed to vehicles, and adjacent streets will close from 3 pm to midnight for the Fashion Rocks concert/event.

From Gib Veconi at Atlantic Yards Watch:
On Tuesday September 9, 2014, Barclays Center will host Fashion Rocks, a major New York Fashion Week event at Barclays Center.
The producers have been granted a permit for a red carpet to be located on Dean Street between Flatbush and 6th Avenue. The 78th Precinct has announced the following street closures for the day of the event.
  • Dean Street between Flatbush Avenue and 6th Avenue, 6:00AM unitl midnight
  • 6th Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Bergen Street, 3:00PM until midnight
  • Pacific Street between Carlton Avenue and 6th Avenue, 3:00PM until midnight
All closures apply to vehicle traffic only. Pedestrians will have access but will not be allowed on the arena sidewalk. Residents and those drivers with garage access will be allowed on to Pacific Street. Arena management has characterized the event as "significantly smaller in scale than the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards."
Neighbors with questions may contact Terence Kelly with questions by email to, or by phone at (347) 834-3957.
Indeed, it is smaller in scale, but it was announced only last Thursday, leading some to ask why Community Boards weren't consulted.
