Recommended Posts

Here are photos I have taken of both Barclays Center Connection (with the Arena), which opened Sept 21, 2012 and the Bleecker Street / Broadway-Lafayette Street (Bronx IRT / IND Connector), which opened Sept 25, 2012

ENJOY =)!

Red (B)(D)(F)(M) foam... lmao. Nice pics. Is the former end of the platform difficult to get a pic of?

 

 

Thanks! Not unless you wanna pass the station illegally ( :P ). But your not gonna see much anyways, just a wall built up.

 

Confused. Where are there so many turnstiles for all 7 Nets fans?

 

 

I don't understand, where your coming at.

why is there doors in some of those hallways just past the turnstiles in the Barclays center entrance?

 

 

I would assume so that they can close off the station if necessary and just make it a transfer between the IRT platforms.

Even if the stadium is closed it still could be used as an exit to that part of Atlantic Ave (or whatever street is there, Flatbush? I dont know the area that well to know all the streets around there)

That is true, and I remember hearing somewhere that they intended to keep this as a 24/7 exit, so I guess only for emergencies. You are right, although the exit is obviously for the stadium, it is also a means of accessing the surrounding neighborhood.

For the doors, thats a question myself. But maybe it was originally intended as a part time station. Likely, that changed.

By just snapping a pix towards the end of the platform, silly! ;)!
