A rather strange sign at the corner of Dean Street and Sixth Avenue: 620 Atlantic Avenue

Atlanitc Yards Report

This is the northwest corner of Dean Street and Sixth Avenue, the home, as of spring 2010, of Freddy's Bar & Backroom and other buildings.

And now

Below is what it looks like now, shot from a somewhat closer perspective. (The construction fence takes up the sidewalk.)

Why does the construction fence bear the address of 620 Atlantic Avenue, which is two blocks to the north and one block to the west (and the former address of the Underberg Building)? Because that's apparently the official address of the arena under construction.
