Raise High the Roof in Brooklyn

New Jersey Nets

Things have been quiet lately at the Barclays Center construction site, but now the arena's roof is starting to take shape. The arena's distinctive arched roof will be supported by a pair of 350-foot-long trusses spanning the long direction of the arena.  A new image, released Tuesday, shows the first first of those arch roof beams being installed at the "billion dollar arena", as the Nets are now calling it.

The placement of pre-cast concrete slabs on already installed metal decking is also projected for this week.

Meanwhile, the Nets announced that LIU, the Brooklyn school that made it to the NCAA (then got beat by North Carolina), could be playing some games at Barclays. The Blackbirds are in talks to play a portion of its home schedule at the arena. IMG, the big booking agency, already has a deal to bring 25 nationally ranked NCAA games to Brooklyn annually.
