Atlantic Avenue-Barclays?

Recommended Posts

Anyone remember this thread, where for at least a little bit we talked about corporate sponsorship of stations and renaming those stations with corporate names? I just heard on WCBS-880 that the (MTA) just did that with Atlantic-Pacific and Barclays Bank.

 

Any thoughts?

It's not a corporate sponsorship of an MTA station. It's no different than Yankee Stadium or Mets Stadium on the stations close by. Barclays is paying Ratner naming rights for the new Nets center in downtown Brooklyn to Barclays Center. Ratner is simply paying the MTA for something it would have done anyways.

Once again, it's not the bank's name going into the station, it's the name of the new New Jersey Nets arena's name which is Barclay Center.
