BROOKLYN - The MTV Video Music Awards rocked the Barclays Center Sunday night, but it took some time for the show to completely die down.

It took workers several hours after the last award was handed out to pack everything up and return the neighborhood to normal.

Several roads remained closed off through the next morning, including Dean Street and 6th Avenue, while crews scrambled to tear down the massive production, including the outdoor stage and red carpet area.

Many residents complained that the event was an inconvenience, but others say it was exciting to have the big show right in their backyard.
