Took the subway from Manhattan with my daughter (very easy & safe) to catch an Islanders game. The subway stop is right at the entrance, so very convenient. It's a different hockey arena than the others I've been in, the ice surface is more to one end, and seating is really only on 3 sides. We had a great view... More

We went to watch the Brooklyn Nets play having never been to a live basketball game before and thinking it was a key sporting event when in the US. Although the atmosphere can be quite forced at times (they whip the crowd up with cheerleaders, free t shirts and singalong chants) it's also a lot of fun and makes the... More

Barclays is a great facility. Just an odd configuration that it's not your typical lower level bowl. Concessions were plentiful and our usher in section (6-7) was amazing. I wish I knew her name to recognize her but it was the Saturday, 3/18/17 game versus Columbus Blue Jackets. She was awesome and beyond hospitable. Thanks to her for making the... More

When the announcer is pleading with the audience to cheer on the Nets you know it's a dead crowd. I've been churches that are more boisterous than this. Also how about open up the upper concourse concessions so that the average wait time for say a soda isn't 35 minutes. Ridiculous.

I visited the BC for a NBA match between the Nets and the Dallas Mavs. The arena is just outstanding and impressive. However, the atmosphere wasn't really good. People just follow the match without showing strong emotions. It's crazy that you can buy tickets at the box office only 60 min before the game get started. However, prices are reasonable.... More

Average steel-structured arena with good subway access in Brooklyn. It's fine but just doesn't compare with beautiful MSG.

I visited the venue twice for a hockey game and twice for a concert. The venue is not set up for hockey games, so have to know where to sit so you have a good view. Nassau Coliseum was way better for a hockey game. Sat on the sides for the concerts. The venue was just OK. The music is... More

We went here to see an Islanders game. We were in the upper levels but still a great view thanks to stadium seating and big screens. Another plus is that it's new and still pretty clean. The food was just awful though. We went to Paisano's which strangely has no Italian food. We ordered chicken fingers with fries and a... More

Green Day was at Barclays last night and we trekked over there from Essex County, NJ the day after a blizzard. I wasn't so excited about it. I was so excited when we arrived at the entrance - and what an entrance it is. The sculptures and nicely designed modern entrance gets you really excited. Getting in was very organized... More
