From the Times travel section: the Barclays Center "still a sore point for many... my daughter doesn't care about that"
This month, my wife is taking my daughter and a friend to see Katy Perry at the Barclays Center, the professional sports arena and home to the Brooklyn Nets, which looks like a giant rusted flying saucer come to rest on Flatbush Avenue. Long fought and argued over, and still a sore point for many, it has become a venue to rival Madison Square Garden.
My daughter doesn’t care about that. She’s just happy the show is five minutes from home.
Consider the Times's scoop on the announcement of a deal to impose a 2025 deadline on the Atlantic Yards housing, along with a new subsidiary and two all-affordable towers.
