The cranes on the construction site of the Barclays Center Arena of Atlantic Yards loom over the homes on 6th Avenue. This residential block, shared with the NYPD 78th precinct (on the right), will be one of the most directly impacted by the 18,000-seat arena. The southeast corner of the arena will be at the end of this block, at the intersection of 6th & Dean Street.
