I am from Montréal where hockey is extremely popular. It is almost impossible to get tickets for a hockey game in Montréal; and, when you do, they are very expensive. So I went to Newark to see a game for the first time in my life. For 50 dollars I had amazing seats near the ice (same tickets would have... More

Great venue in a central, easily accessible area. When they have events there is more than enough police presence in the area. Area parking is usually $20+ during events but don't cheap out...you are in Newark.

Saw Fleetwood Mac here. The place was packed. Nice stadium. Plenty of places to eat and drink before the concert. Had floor seating. No one sat through the entire concert.

Light years better than the Izod Center. Devils games are fun and the fans are great. Seton Hall also plays here along with various concerts. Newark is not the most attractive place, but the Prudential Center (The Rock) is in a decent section of the city. Worth a visit.

My first visit to "The Rock" last night for a Devils/ Maple Leafs game was perfect. We sat in HP's suite which was well stocked with food & drink & the Devils won too. What else could you ask for. This arena is beautiful & viewing a hockey game seemed perfect no matter where you sat. The amenities are ample... More
