Dear Commissioner Sadik-Khan,

Our immediate area will be affected significantly and in unique ways by the operation of the Barclays Center and the implementation of the Atlantic Yards Project. We are dependent on the effectiveness of the Project’s mitigations and roadway improvements.

The Carlton Avenue Association and the Dean Street Block Association, 6th Avenue to Vanderbilt would like to extend an invitation to an informed representative of the Department of Transportation to attend a public meeting hosted by our associations to directly answer our community’s questions and address our concerns about traffic and pedestrian circulation on our streets. We believe because of the unique way we are impacted by the project, a meeting focused on our concerns is appropriate and necessary.

Because of the importance and timeliness of this meeting, our associations have set aside our regular calendared May meetings in order to accommodate the schedule of your representative. We have also invited Atlantic Yards Project Director Arana Hankin.

Thank you,

Richard Goldstein, President
Carlton Avenue Association
