The rust recurs on the Barclays Center sidewalk

The pre-rusted metal mesh of the Barclays Center has gotten generally positive but decidedly mixed reviews.

But what was clearly not anticipated was that the rust would not only drip onto the adjacent sidewalk, it would quickly stain any replacement.

Various parts of the sidewalk outside the arena were being replaced, as I wrote in May, but, as the photo below shows on the Atlantic Avenue perimeter, it hasn't taken long for the rust to recur.
