The New Place

It's just about ready to open!   Brooklyn's new multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena - The Barclays Center.  The Rolling Stones will play two of their only four 50th anniversary concerts in this building in November.
A unique feature of the new Barclays Center is the open-air front entrance canopy that features a high-def video screen on the inside walls.  Here you see the start - on the right - of a test for the color blue.
The NBA's New Jersey Nets will begin play in this new building in a few weeks.  The start of the pro basketball season will mark the return of major professional sports to Brooklyn ever since the Dodgers moved from the borough to Los Angeles after the 1957 baseball season.
I hear the inside of the arena is fantastic.  Not all that crazy however about the exterior color.
These street light banners are up all over the borough.
