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.

We got tickets for the Brooklyn Nets vs Dertoit Pistons for $25 each, a great price for NBA tickets. The arena itself was great, easy to reach by subway and no hassle getting through security etc. Our seats were great with a great view of the court.
The food stalls were another story, we ordered a beer, a coke and 2 hot dogs and it cost $49! We have been to NBA games in LA, Orlando and Toronto and have never seen prices like this for food and drink. At a Toronto Raptors game a week earlier, the same order cost me CA$28 and this had free refills on the coke. I can't understand how they can get away with charging these prices. But this was the only negative on our visit, everything else was great.

If you're a tourist in NYC and you want to watch a ball game, going to watch the Brooklyn Nets is a great alternative to watching the New York Nicks play basketball. The Nicks charge $180+ a ticket, whereas we paid $36 each for the Brooklyn Nets (and they weren't the cheapest tickets). Sure, we were up high but we could still see a lot and the atmosphere was great - shame the home team lost :-(

The food at the venue was tasty and not too pricey, but the drinks were ridiculously expensive - shame really

The Barclays Center has all of the amenities to make attending an event a good time.

The concourse is wide and easy to navigate. There are many options for food and drinks, including a candy store with many options.

There are a good amount of entrances to the venue so waits are not long to get in.

I have been to many hockey games here and a concert. The concert setup was fine.

The drawback is that they did not design the building for hockey and many seats are not good. This was a mistake in design and they are not willing to make the changes required.

I am sure that it is good for basketball, but I have not been there for that.
