An Arena Grows In Brooklyn ~ December 2010

This latest look at the BARCLAYS CENTER construction site is as-of December 2, 2010. 
The arena is finally taking form.


Looking west along Atlantic Avenue and 6th Avenue.
The building in the far right of this picture, with the store front over-hangs and flag poles fixed above, is the Atlantic Center Mall.  The exterior was designed to subtly mimic a ball park.  That is the location where Walter O'Malley wanted to build a new Ebbets Field for the Dodgers.  The street behind the wooded fence on the right is Atlantic Avenue.  Flatbush Avenue intersects Atlantic Avenue from this picture's left-to-right.







Along Atlantic Avenue.









Future home of Professional Basketball in Brooklyn.
