“PruCenter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is a state of the art facility! I have attended concerts, sporting events, etc. here and have enjoyed them tremendously! It is a thousand times better than going to the Meadowlands and spending way too much time in traffic getting to and from the venue. Furthermore the parking is a nightmare at the Meadowlands. The parking is great at PruCenter. You can prepay online, get your parking permit, and if you opt to park in the Yellow Zone, you don't even have to go outside once you enter the parking facility (there is a bridge on level 4 that takes you directly into the facility)! Many people are afraid of Newark, but I must say that the security is top notch! There are plenty of excellent restaurants to visit in the Ironbound that will satisfy the most discerning palate!

The arena is very clean and expansive, has a bevy of food choices and excellent sight lines. Excellent place to view a game or concert.

“This is a great venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have been here many times. The only issue is parking is a bit expensive. If you want to eat before check out the area on a food site so you can pick the restaurant you want to go to and go early because the restaurant can be crowded just before an event.

“Rihanna Concert at Prudential”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Prudential was a clean venue with a moderate amount of security for the location in which it is in. Prudential offered a decent selection of food and drinks. The bathroom area was kept fairly clean. There is a secure parking area right across from the venue which is ideal for people visiting for events.
