Recently, we looked at our partner TickPick’s piece on the Madison Square Garden Seating Chart and the recent renovations that have closed down MSG for the past few summers. It was a fascinating piece and definitely worth a read for any New York City fans looking to catch a game at the Garden.
Luckily, TickPick has you covered for the Barclays Center as well. Here you can TickPick’s blog article on the Barclays Center Seating Chart, a detailed breakdown on the seating map for all Nets games and concerts. It’s a must read for any Brooklynite looking to attend the relatively new Barclays Center and TickPick offers some excellent insight on how to find the best seats in the house. Here’s an “expert’s tip” that demonstrates the level of information you’ll find:
Expert Tip: At a recent concert my seats, section 226 row 1, had an obstructed view, and the sound quality was awful (even though the Barclays Box Office didn’t label them as such). When I complained to Barclays Guest Services, I was told to check out the Honda Center. The Honda Center (which is located behind section 15 & 16) is an open lounge area that is available for every ticket holder. There are a limited number of seats, but there’s plenty of standing room. So if you a limited view seat, or have a tight budget, I would buy the cheapest tickets and watch the concert from the Honda Center, it was much better than my first row seats in section 226.
The Honda Center sounds like a pretty cool find to me and next time I attend the Barclays, I’ll make sure to check it out. All that is left from their article is a breakdown on the hockey setup for when the Islanders come to town. There’s already been some noise that seating is less than ideal in certain areas, so make sure to check the TickPick blog frequently for an inevitable update on Barclays Center hockey seating.
