At the arena transit entrance, the neon art installation "We Belong Here" seems to be endorsing the Brooklyn Nets

Well, the signage inside (and outside) the Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr subway exit/entrance to the arena plaza is controlled by the arena company, as we've learned, part of monetizing the available canvas outside and around the arena.

That inside signage, as shown below, has most recently advertised the Brooklyn Nets, though it's previously been given over to other advertising (generic medication!) and even a political message (mis?)attributed to Angela Davis.

Seen from the below vantage point--shot when the sky was just starting to darken--the neon message of "We belong here" seems also to endorse the belong-ness of the Nets. Seen from the opposite direction, as I've argued, the neon art installation--"You belong here"--seems also to endorse ticket purchases at the Barclays Center.
