New York’s Barclays Center project accused of ignoring noise, pollution regulations

Construction crews racing to finish the Brooklyn Barclays Center are ignoring strict regulations to reduce noise and pollution, a new report by critics has found. In 2006, developer Forest City Ratner agreed to keep the site safe for Prospect Heights residents by limiting late night work; washing dust off trucks; and requiring heavy duty vehicles to use main streets in an effort to avoid residential blocks. But the study concluded that many of those precautions were being ignored at the arena and related sites.
