Saturday Night Live makes fun of Barclays Center critics

NBC via Atlantic Yards Report

As anyone who has followed the Barclays Center saga knows, public urination is one of the biggest fears locals have had about the arena's arrival in Brooklyn. They claimed this week that their fears have been realized. "It was a cesspool," said one perturbed resident at a community meeting. "The stench was so bad, it was there the next day."

Among those not so perturbed was Seth Myers, host of Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update. Myers deadpanned on this week's show: "Residents of Brooklyn who live near the new Barclays Center are complaining that a large number of people urinating on the streets and behind buildings after Brooklyn Nets games--and also for the last 200 years."
