With construction ahead of schedule at Belmont Park, there were some more leaks on the Belmont Park Arena renderings.
At the end of last week, we received the news that the New York Islanders will be playing all their playoff games and home schedule next season at the Nassau Coliseum. This was news that was exciting to the fans who would no longer have to make the daunting trip to Brooklyn.
While in the short-term, the Coliseum is the Islanders home a more permanent home at Belmont Park is the real treat in all of this. By the 2021-2022 season, the Isles will be moving permanently into their new home.
Yesterday, some more renderings leaked of what the arena is going to look like and I can’t get enough of it.
With high ceilings and the green metal beams, it is a very vintage feel paying homage to the Belmont Park track. They didn’t have to design it similar to the track but I think it gives it a nice touch and makes it feel more fitting to be in that location.
It’s important to have wider walkways and more areas for fans to hang out which it looks like the Isles decided to add in and we see a nice preview in these renderings.
This new arena can’t come soon enough. The Islanders deserve their own state of the art arena and to be treated like a world-class organization. Scott Malkin, Jon Ledecky, Lou Lamoriello, and Barry Trotz are making sure that’s going to be the case for this team going forward and it’s a great time to be a fan of this franchise.
