The WWE SummerSlam (undisclosed) takeover includes Sixth Avenue and broadcast lot

Well, according to information released earlier this week by the Barclays Center regarding this weekend's WWE SummerSlam event, yes, there was supposed to be noise-attenuated generator installed on the west side of Pacific Street and Sixth Avenue outside the Sugar Factory entrance, as shown in the photo below.

A couple of other phenomena, however, were not disclosed.

There was no mention that media trucks would be placed behind the MPT (maintenance and protection of traffic) on Sixth Avenue outside the arena. Isn't the MPT area supposed to be limited to construction?

Now was there hint that the broadcast lot on the east side of Sixth Avenue between Dean and Pacific streets would be used to assist event attendees.

According to the latest Construction Alert, issued this past Tuesday, "Broadcast lot will be shared/ utilized by both the arena and the B3 site for temporary storage of equipment."

Actually, as the brief video below from yesterday shows, it's also being used for parking--valet parking, I'm told. The big event in the three-day festival is tonight, starting at 6:30.
