The actual center is VERY Gaudy!!! But they've had some pretty good performers there. I got to see Marc Anthony when it first opened and it was awesome. I live about a half hour away if I walked there.

Great new arena. Went here a couple times for a bball game and a concert. Both times had a great time. Nice, clean, spacious seating (relatively) nice selection of food spots and good design that makes it easy to see the floor from almost anywhere.

Its a large venue so it can be hard to enjoy a show, but every time i've been there it was great. The sound is good and although the last show I was at, I sat very high up, it was still a good view. Sometimes you gotta just go to these big venues for the bands you love.

We had a suite for the Saturday night Arcade Fire concert and believe me they make you feel like a VIP. we had a private entrance, and private waiter the whole night. It was not a cheap night but well worth every penny.

VIP Tour - very fun and informative. Thumbs up 40/40 Presented by American Express - hosts seem disorganized despite abundance of empty tables but service is very good. Portions are on the small side and pricey but taste good. Thumbs up to Calexio and Brooklyn Burger for food venues John Legend concert - was accused by person next to me... More

I have never been so frightened at a concert. The seats in the upper level were almost vertical, like a cliff. It felt like being on a ride at a theme park without the seatbelts. Every time someone had to pass our seats, there was nothing to hold onto. One false move and someone would easily fall down 100 feet... More

I've taken my son to so many shows and concerts here it's ridiculous! Having this stadium just a few miles away is awesome. We saw the Marvel live action show and it really surprised me how great the show was done even including toys that interacted with the show. Great seats throughout the arena and so many food options too!... More

Attended the Katy Perry Concert here with a teen, hosted by a donor. It was terrific. The facility is fairly new and far superior to Madison Sq Garden. We had VIP Suite tickets (a wonderful experience) and entered through a separate door. We took an elevator up to the suite level. The suite was carpeted with two rows of 4... More

Awesome show!!! designers have worked with scientists to create 20 life-size dinosaurs, including the terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus rex!

In December, my wife and I attended a P!nk Concert at the Barclay Center. The venue was very clean and well organized. It also had a large assortment of vendors with food and drink. The most impressive part of the Barclay Center however was their staff. My wife and I had seats in the 2nd row of the balcony seats.... More
