The New York Islanders were officially awarded Belmont Park yesterday and we already have official artist renderings of the new arena.
The past couple of days have been some of the craziest, yet most important days in New York Islanders history of the last 25 years. The Islanders will be playing their home games at a purpose built, state of the art arena built just for them.
Yesterday, they had a press conference to officially announce the Islanders getting the deal. We already have seen a preview of what the arena will look like.
Take a look for yourself:
Guys the scoreboard is centered! Unfortunately, there’s no Yesuv along the boards but I think fans will quickly move on from the quirkiness of the Barclays Center.
It’s obvious that this is the Islanders home, which that isn’t the case at the Barclays Center, that’s my biggest takeaway from this. There’s blue and orange everywhere. In addition, we also see how close they’re going to build it to the railroad station.
Islanders fans have every reason to be excited about this. Sure, we likely won’t see it until 2020 at the very least but it’s completely okay to be excited. Good times are approaching.
