All Aboard at The Barclays Center

Barclays Center - December 22 (Tom Kaminski / WCBS 880)

New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority confirms that the Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street subway station across from the Barclays Center will be "co-named" with some variation of "Barclays" in 2012. The Atlantic-Pacific names on the various subway entrances will be retained as well.

The station, along with the Long Island Railroad's Atlantic Terminal, will be linked to the arena's entrance plaza via a $71 million "Transit Connection" which will be completed in the spring. Nine subway lines and 10 LIRR lines can be reached via the station. Two other lines have stations within blocks.

Once "Barclays" is added to the station's name, it'll be added to city subway maps. Arena owners Forest City Ratner (and presumably Mikhail Prokhorov's Onexim Sports and Entertainment), will pay the MTA an annual naming rights fee of $200,000.
