Plexiglas windows being added to 16-foot green wall at Vanderbilt and Dean to improve sightlines

A message circulated yesterday from Pacific Park Brooklyn indicates that plexiglas windows will be added tomorrow to the 16-foot green wall at Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street, which aims to protect neighbors from noise and dust during construction but also encroaches significantly into the street.

(This is not the fence at Carlton Avenue and Dean, but is rather a busier, two-way intersection.)

Presumably this allows drivers going east on Dean to turn left or right on Vanderbilt while better assessing any oncoming traffic.

Community Notice
Changes to the Green Construction Fence at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue & Dean Street Starting on Friday, March 27th
Dear Neighbor,
We wanted you to be aware that after consultation with the Fire Department of New York we will be making some minor modifications to the construction fence that surrounds Block 1129 bounded by Carlton Avenue, Vanderbilt Avenue, Dean Street & Pacific Street.
We will be adding Plexiglas windows to the fence at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street to allow for a better sight line. While there have not been any issues to date, the Fire Department feels that this change is important and we are working to quickly implement it.
The height of the fence will remain unchanged and we expect the work to take 2 to 3 days to complete.
As always, please feel free to reach out to our office with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your time.
