Came here for a concert. Multiple lines of people waiting to enter, but only a few people to search bags, wand you to check for weapons, and to scan tickets - nowhere near the staff needed to process the many, many attendees. So there were folks still waiting to get in by the time the opener started. The bar ran... More

This was my first time in an ice hockey stadium (for a graduation party) and I was impressed. The wall with all the college jersey is a nice touch, the stadium is big but you are never far away from the court. The only bad thing is that the food is expensive and the airconditioning is turned on way too... More

I attended a college graduation on 5/21/15 for Kean University and was amazed at the poor handling of the event. First of all the parking situation was terrible with all parking lots charging from 30-40 dollars for parking which was obviously price gouging on their part and all accepted cash. Some parking lots even parked your vehicle on city streets... More

Wes were here for Seton Hall University Commencement ceremony: This is a beautiful arena, and well air-conditioned for a hot day.

Have been there several times, it is the business district center of my hometown. Excellent arena. good size, good sound, close to train and bus stations. Prudential Center is also the home of NJ Devil's and Seton Hall Pirates, playing an important role in the revival of the City of Newark.

This is a great spot to watch an event. We will likely be back. Our seats were excellent. Lots of food choices, both within the arena and in the surrounding area. Walking distance to NEWARK'S Penn Station (not to be confused with NYC's Penn) Several hotel choices also within walking distance.

We attended a concert here on a Saturday night. This venue is located about 2 blocks from Newark Penn Station. A very short walk. There are several places to eat in the vicinity. We had tickets at will call to pick up and they seemed on top of things. The Will Call has their own separate entrance detached from the... More

Ok....four of us headed out from Long Island to see Eric Church at the center. My boy Eric ALWAYS puts on an amazing show so that was not an issue at all. 1st off as usual drive from Long Island to anywhere sucked. Once we arrived parking was a gamble. Random parking lots crammed full of crazy people who have... More
