Fort Greene Place at Hanson Place
Brooklyn, New York
May 27, 2010
around 3pm, facing south along Fort Greene Place
toward the site of the Barclays Center Arena of Atlantic Yards
I planned to shoot this time lapse on the corner on the left on the far side of Hanson Place (next to the crosswalk signal). Within minutes of setting up the tripod, I was told by a nice gentleman in a suit that I wasn't allowed to photograph there as it was a private street, that the street was demapped by the city for "the owner of these two buildings" (a.k.a. the Atlantic Center Mall on the left, and the Atlantic Terminal Mall on the right). He said that he couldn't stop me from photographing on a "city" street, so I moved across Hanson Place.
