From Atlantic Yards Watch: at the Dean Street Playground, an adult interloper with a reflector vest

Atlantic Yards Report

This report on Atlantic Yards Watch from August 5, at 2:06 pm, does not describe the most significant local impact from construction, but it's still telling.

A construction worker, obviously looking for a place to rest (likely post-shift), planted himself on a bench at the Dean Street Playground half a block east of the arena site.

The worker's vest identified him as working for an arena site subcontractor, and I'm told by the AY Watch contributor this was one of a number of similar episodes at the playground.

No adults allowed without kids

However, as the sign indicates, playground rules prohibit adults except in the company of children. (And sometimes cops ticket people for violating the rule, as in this episode in June at a park in Bed-Stuy.)
