I think the area as a whole will generate a lot more revenue than before. With an arena, comes more people before games so more retail is sort of inevitable.

Impressive, altough I'm not usually an advocate for new construction. (Seating bowl modeled after Staples Center in LA)


As far as concerts Barbra Streisand is also performing there and her first show sold out within 5 Minutes. I know she's a huge musician but I honestly didn't expect that. The arena is so young and is already selling out shows Lol.

The death of MSG. But on the other hand there's always gonna be artists who will play the Garden because of its legendary and historical status.

The Garden will ALWAYS be legendary, the Barclays Center have a long way to go before that status. There's room for the both of them.

Nah MSG is too legendary plus it's in Manhattan, not to mention this city is big enough for two big arenas

Even though I know MSG can't be happy about this because there's still that arena in Newark, Yankee stadium, and now the Barclays center a lot of competition in the NY area

The day MSG is not a grossing venue anymore the "revitalization forces" will be more than willing to tear it down.

There's not much competition between an indoor arena and a stadium. Most major acts can fill an arena 18,000-20,000 but only a few a whole stadium and during the winter stadiums are of course excluded.

Some photos I recently took. . . . (It'll be open in a couple of months, literally!)


^^ The Oculus


^^Signage is covered.


^^ From a distance


I really think this will have a good outcome for new retail opportunities and more street vibrancy.
