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

During crane assembly, Sixth Avenue sidewalk was supposed to stay open. It didn't. Who's accountable?

Before the crane installation/assembly that began yesterday, the notice stated that Sixth Avenue between Pacific and Dean Streets would be closed to through traffic for 15 hours, from 6 am to 9 pm, on Saturday, and for 6 hours today, from 6 am to noon.

The east sidewalk of Sixth Avenue was to remain open. However, as shown in the Instagram photo below, taken around 5 pm yesterday, it wasn't. This raises the ongoing issue of accountability. Why can't the state, developer, and/or city be monitoring this, and responding to citizen oversight in real time?
