In the heart of Brooklyn, at the crossroads of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues, Barclays Center is setting a new standard as the showcase venue for the world's most thrilling entertainment and sports events.
Developed by Brooklyn-based real estate developer Forest City Ratner Companies and designed by the award-winning architectural firms AECOM and SHoP Architects, Barclays Center is the state-of-the-art home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets and the NH L's New York Islanders, boasting one of the most intimate seating configurations ever designed for a modern multi-purpose arena.
