An "arena broadcast support area" is coming to residential Prospect Heights; first a presentation to CB 8, then to DOT
Atlantic Yards Report
Last night reps from Forest City Ratner made a presentation to Community Board 8 on a petition for a revocable consent to install cable conduits under 6th Avenue, between Dean and Pacific, and use a lot on the corner of Dean Street and 6th Avenue as a “broadcast support area.” Basically, the compact lot (which is currently a police parking lot) will be used for news trucks to park.
Actually, while it may be currently a police parking lot, it was, for years, occupied in part by two houses. Their removal might be considered the creation of blight.
