For the third time in less than a month, someone has ripped a "No Standing" sign out of the sidewalk across the street from Atlantic Yards.
But this time, the culprit was caught on video.
The video, which was posted this morning on Atlantic Yards Report and can also be seen in the photo gallery at right, is quite long. But at 1:10 minutes you can see a man get out of his SUV begin rocking the sign back and forth until it pulls out. At 3:16 he moves the sign across the street so it's closer the MTA's Vanderbilt Yard.
"It’s the project in a microcosm. This video perfectly illustrates Atlantic Yards’ approach to complying with local regulations," said Gib Veconi, an area activist and Prospect Heights Patch blogger, via e-mail.
The videographer caught the man's SUV's license plate number, and we're waiting to hear back from the police about whether they are trying to track him down.
