The set up for the concert was great, it's the beverage set up that I didn't love. You buy an $8.00 glass of wine and it's in practically a Dixie Cup. When you have a hike back to your seats, trying to walk with an...More

We went to the Blue Cross Arena for a Neil Diamond Concert and sat in the lower level. I was surprised how well the sound system was in this arena. Much better than some of the other arenas I've attended.

Great stadium for watching the Rochester Americans AHL Team. Parking is near by and the prices won't set one back too far - affordability is dependability!

It's now called the Blue Cross Arena and it still houses the AHL Rochester Americans, an original tenant from the 1950s. It's also home to the Rochester Knighthawks lacrosse team and the Rochester Razor Sharks basketball team. The sight lines are good and there isn't...More

The BC Arena is not a bad place to see RIT/ Amerks hockey, or like last weekend the Bonnie's college b-ball game. None of the seats are too far away (not like a basketball game at the Carrier Dome!). And I cannot remember how the...More

There are many parking garages within 1 block of the arena. The parking lot at the Arena is reserved for those with disabilities.

There are nearby ramps for parking. I park in the lot directly across the street where the court building is. There's ample parking there as well as an elevator if you have to park in the lower levels. I hope this is helpful
