For the 2021-22 season, the New York Islanders moved to their brand new purpose-built home on Long Island; UBS Arena. Built for hockey, UBS Arena is the New York Islanders brand new state-of-the-art arena that was built specifically for the Islanders and their fans.

Incredible sight lines. Loud as hell atmosphere. Excellent amenities (and plenty of washrooms). Not to mention a bunch of fan favorite food kiosks like BlueLine Deli and Offside Tavern.

It's been a long time coming. The Islanders have effectively been nomads since 2015 when they moved to Brooklyn to take up residence at the Barclays Center. It was a rough relationship that was strenuous from the start. With UBS that is all behind them now.

Where is it?
UBS is situated in Queens at the historic Belmont Park just off the Cross Islanders Expressway. It's just over 13 miles from the Islanders previous home; the Nassau Coliseum.

2400 Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont is the official address to the Isles sparkling new building.

How to get here?
How you get there will depend on where you're coming from of course. Getting there by car is easy enough just enter the address into your phone map app or in your GPS. But essentially you'll want to get off at either exit 26A, B, or D.

Public transportation is a bit tougher to navigate if you aren't a local. Again it depends on where you're coming from. The LIRR app will be incredibly helpful to check train times.

Dedicated LIRR trains for UBS leave various points through NY (Jamaica, Penn Station, Hempstead Station, Atlantic Terminal) The UBS site has a helpful guide to tell you where to get the LIRR train to get to the arena depending on where you are in the city.
