Oculus Up and Running!


The oculus at Barclays Center was up and running Wednesday afternoon, flashing information about the arena and transit options. Earlier in the day, it was running a test pattern from Daktronics, the company that's supplying the LED displays both in the arena and on the oculus. The oculus will serve much the same purpose as the billboard above the Madison Square Garden's entrance, except it will be much cooler. Meanwhile, AYInfoNYC, which monitors site work at the arena, has posted a number of videos from Wednesday's tests.

Another Barclays Breakthrough: Free ATM's!


Forget the oculus and the great wi-fi connections. Barclays Center will have free ATM's! A small start-up called FreeATM Inc. and the Nets are partnering to bring ATMs with no fees to New York. The Barclays Center will have seven ATMs on Opening Night, including one which provides access to the public not attending an event. Instead of paying that $2 or $3 fee, FreeATM machines at Barclays are supported by advertising from Yelp and MetroPCS. Wanna bet whose face you'll see on the screen when you slip your card in?

Critics Plan Opening Night Protests


A coalition of groups opposed to Bruce Ratner's plan for Atlantic Yards will gather at Barclays Center and online on September 27-28 to protest Opening Night at what they call the "Crime Scene." The series of events will begin with a candlelight vigil outside the arena at 7 p.m. the night before, followed by a press conference at 11 a.m. the next day and then "pop-up actions" throughout the afternoon.

Latest Aerials Show Canopy Moving Forward


What architects call Barclays Center's "grand gesture", its canopy, is quickly taking shape. As seen in the latest aerials by Tom Kaminski in WCBS Chopper 880, the steel framework is being covered and readied for installation of the "oculus" where a 360-degree LED screen will show everything from game highlights to live video from Prospect Park.

Black and White Cookies Talking with Nets?


What's next? A deal with Ying and Yang? Black and White Cookie Company CEO Joshua Auerbach, who calls himself the CookieMan, is negotiating with Barclays Center for a cookie concession or more at the arena, TheStreet.com reports. And yes, yes, TheStreet.com says Auerbach hopes to be rolling in dough.

New Subway Maps Show "Barclays Center"


New York's new subway maps show "Barclays Center" as a stop in Brooklyn. If you look closely at the May 2012 maps, available online or at subway kiosks, "Barclays Ctr." is co-listed with Atlantic Avenue on the two interconnected stops that link nine lines to the arena. Fans will exit the subway and enter Barclays Center via the $71 million "Transit Connection" in front of the arena. Forest City Ratner is paying the MTA $200,000 a year for the station "naming rights," which will also include platform signage. And no, Madison Square Garden is not listed on the maps.

More Finishing Touches at Barclays


With the first hurdle in the liquor license process cleared, Barclays Center is moving on a number of other approvals. The latest involves a street opening permit to put down broadcast cables linking the arena to a truck parking lot for the YES Network and any other TV operator. The "arena broadcast support area" will be located across the street from the arena.

TUNE-IN ALERT: Bruce Ratner on Charlie Rose


For your post-game viewing: Barclays Center majority owner and Nets minority owner Bruce Ratner will be a guest on the Charlie Rose Show at 12:30 a.m. tonight on Channel 13. Ratner will talk about the progress at Barclays Center and how it will be integrated into Brooklyn's social and cultural fabric.

Nets Seek Taste of Brooklyn for Arena


The Nets want to serve authentic Brooklyn food to their fans at games as well as concert goers. Barclays Center officials have sent out a survey to find which borough restaurants and food service businesses can give a little Brooklyn flavor to the arena, writes Erin Durkin in the Daily News.

Nets Developing Code of Conduct for Barclays


At a community meeting this week, a representative of Forest City Ratner said arena management and presumably the Nets are at work on a code of conduct for Barclays Center. Among the possibilities, suggested Jane Marshall, is a cutoff of beer sales earlier than the end of the third quarter, the NBA rule. Local residents note that the Brooklyn arena is more intertwined with a residential neighborhood than any other.
