Another mess outside arena: stopped truck idles on Sixth Avenue, blocking traffic

Oh sure, the Democratic National Convention would have just gone fine in Brooklyn.

Actually, I'm not sure developer Forest City Ratner really wanted the convention to come to the Barclays Center (where, at the time the DNC was under consideration, the developer was selling tis 55% share of the operating company). After all, it would have shut down construction of Greenland Forest City Partners' Pacific Park Brooklyn project.

Because they couldn't have had project-related trucks idling outside the arena, blocking traffic on Sixth Avenue, as shown in the Instagram and video below from Wayne Bailey. Note the quote overheard from the driver: he didn't know where to go.
