Marty Brodeur jersey retirement

Our first visit to 'the rock' and what a special one. I found this venue as nice on the upper levels as on the main level. I would have to say not a bad seat in the house. Great... read more

Our first visit to 'the rock' and what a special one. I found this venue as nice on the upper levels as on the main level. I would have to say not a bad seat in the house. Great special event to see Marty's jersey lifted to the rafters.

I've been to a couple of games at Prudential Center when the Caps were in town, and I must say it's a beautiful facility. If you enter on Edison Street, you find yourself in a tall atrium with escalators to take you to the concourse. When we first went in December 2014, they had fake snow falling down from the... More

So many things you could change to make this place world class and it would take about 5 minutes Staff is terrible to say the least Food choices are awful and closing the beer at 9 pm is just unamerican but I guess the surrounding area leads to the issue If you can avoid this area period

The concourse around this arena offers lots of food options and purchase opportunities. There was lots of room to walk. The sound was great even during a loud rock concert. The upper sections are very steep inclines so be aware. Parking is expensive and when the concert lets out the traffic is total gridlock.

It was Essex County Graduation that I attends there, it was amazing, I mean the place is very big and clean which is also good for entertainment plus it was well guarded by Cops and security.

Just saw Muse here this week and saw Foo Fighters here a few years ago. Acoustics are great, space is ample, plenty of food options, including even a healthy spot. Which is not something you usually find in an arena. Close to transportation (although you take a long walk through Gateway Center from the Path) and always has a large... More

Apart from the dick head in the photo I put on was a good do. The beer is $13 a can which is a rip off and the food is expensive but apart from that great transport link to New York

Just came back after a week in NYC. No Rangers game so took the train over to Newark go watch the Devils hockey game. Easy short trek from the Newark Penn Station and easy to scalp tickets outside main entrance - lots of selection. The Prudential Center is a great venue to watch a hockey game as all sitelines quite... More
