Got tickets for the circus tomorrow PM and we are scheduled for ANOTHER Winter storm.

Is there a tunnel connection between the LIRR/Subway station at Atlantic and Flatbush and the Barclays Center? Or must we go outside to go from one to the other.

My understanding from being to 3 shows there is you have to go outside. However from the closest entrance you would literally be outside for only seconds before reaching the front doors of the Barclay's Center (depending on whether there is a line outside of course...)

I wonder why they didn't build some sort of subway exit/entrance right into the lobby of BC. Marooons

This. The entrance to Barclays is right in front of a subway exit. If you look at this pic its under the green plant thing in the front. Close, but not attached.

You can go from the subway to the front door in the above picture, but I'm not sure you do the same from the LIRR platforms. Worst case, pay to come in the subway and walk through underground. What's an extra $2.50 in a blizzard ?

Thanks guys,

I'll be on the subway (4 or 5) and will try to find that appropriate exit.

Coming from the city this exit is toward the front of the train, and clearly marked.

Yes, that picture is exactly what I was referring to. Close but not connected. If there is no line you can get inside very quickly.

Would love to know how the circus is there - let us know!

Front of train, got it, thanks. That's very helpful.

I had often gone to BAM regularly over the years and never quite figured that immense station out. So much up and down and around...like Fulton Street.
