Watch how Barclays Center delivery truck unloading in neighborhood snags fire truck on Dean Street

So, what happens when you have Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park construction, Barclays Center operations, and an active fire station in a very tight perimeter? Something has to give, and the larger neighborhood becomes a staging arena. It's not uncommon.

These videos from Thursday 2/25/16 show a food delivery truck that was dislodged from the Barclays Center loading dock, apparently, when a fire department response took precedence.

The food truck then moved down Dean Street just past Sixth Avenue, opposite a site formerly occupied by row houses and set to be a 27-story tower with school, to continue unloading. Except that blocked the fire truck from returning to the station, and the traffic behind it. I'm told the situation persisted for considerably longer than shown in the videos.
