Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

As per usual, Barclays Center events draw blatant violations: limo parked in bus stop, SUV in crosswalk, vehicle at hydrant

It was a busy weekend at the Barclays Center, with a New York Islanders vs. New Jersey Devils game last night, and a Brooklyn Nets vs. Los Angeles Clippers game on Saturday night, in both cases starting at the family-friendly hour of 5 pm.

And then, of course, came illegal parking. It's another argument for increased resources (and priority) to curb on such blatant (and frequent) violations

Take the limo parked in a bus stop on Bergen Street just west of Flatbush Avenue, with hazard lights flashing but no driver, as shown in a photo last night sent by a reader.
