The magnitude of the New York/New Jersey concert and family show market was underscored by Billboard’s rankings. Three of the top four U.S.-grossing arenas are in this region — No. 2 overall Barclays Center in Brooklyn ($46.9M), No. 4 Madison Square Garden in Manhattan ($39.5M), and No. 8 Prudential Center, which in the United States also trailed the sixth-ranked Staples Center in Los Angeles ($36.2M).

The Newark arena sold out 11 of 41 events, while Barclays Center sold out 20 of 90 and the Garden sold out 22 out of 33.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

This is great news, although those numbers from Barclays are pretty suspect. It's the smallest of the 3, I'd imagine they've inflated those numbers.

 

But yes, this is directly good news for Devils fans and Rangers fans considering the direct ownership situation they have (which is pretty rare nowadays).

To me Barclays is ugly, it looks rusted from the outside. The seats are cramped and steep. I prefer Pru Center and not from a strict homer sense. It's got wider concourses too

 

Barclays seems like it tries hard to be the GQ arena,

They used steel that would rust on purpose to give it 'that' look. So dumb.

The outside looks disgusting in the day time. I heard it looks ridiculous at night. I liked the variety of food they had though and the inside I thought was nice but I'd still take the pru center too. (overall area around the arena though obviously bk wins over downtown Newark)

traditional materials were rejected in favor of 12,000 separate pieces of what is called “weathering steel,” and that leathery brown hue, which is the arena’s final finish, is not paint but an intended layer of rust.

The rust also helps saves money as it actually acts like a protective coating over the steal and delays corrosion.

 

Haven't been to the Barclay's Center yet but I can imagine the food inside is a thousand times better than the slop they have at the Rock.

I hate the place (my landlord sold my building because it fvcked with property values in Brooklyn), but it looks pretty cool.

The food at the Rock is not so bad. I mean for arena grub, it's actually pretty darn good.

I bet it was a bit higher than expected since the Garden didn't host as many events with the renovation

 

Still, once they lose their anchor tenant to Barclays, Nassau becomes pretty much obsolete. Even if they try to renovate it and scale it down. Nobody is going to want to play a small venue that's now even smaller when they can play Barclays or MSG and Pru and be closer to the city.

I think it could be a decent medium sized concert venue.... if they put money into it.    But man, it needs money put into it.   It's still a market that needs servicing.  It's not like the Pru Center/Meadowlands thing where they're 10 minutes from each other.

Exactly, the people in those "far east" (to us at least) towns in Bethpage or Levittown of Farmingdale...the Nassau Coliseum is the best they've got. And if they lose that it's going to be a tough shlep over to Brooklyn to see U2 or Green Day.

Unfortunately for them, the ties in the steel have already been in need of replacement.

The rock does need to step up the food options, especially with more and more restaurants/bars opening up outside
