The place is easy to get to with plenty of parking options and of course the subway. There is plenty to do in the area and it is clean and safe. The seating is not at all designed for NHL games which is why we were there. The upper deck seats are very high and make watching the games difficult but the lower level seats were fine. I don't know how long the Islanders plan on staying here but the seating will need to change as in several sections you are angled away from the action. The concourses are big and offer a very good variety of food and drink options.
