    It will be ready for 2021 - 2022 season. Yes, split until then.

    Pumped! New transit routes planned to it as well. Going to be real easy for me to get to games.

    I'm guessing by the comments here that the new arena will be located in a favorable area? If so, happy for you Isles fans.

    Shovels will be in the ground any day. There’s already been heavy machinery showing up on the grounds!

    So pumped!!! Can’t wait

    Nice! Congrats Islanders fans.

    Hopefully they keep the lower bowl free of Hondas this time around.

    Great......and finally. It was getting soap operat-like.

    Very happy for the Isles and their fans. Next to Belmont Park seems like a good location.

    does the car get its own luxury box? Or will it be in the stands with the rest of the crowd?

    Haha. I went to the Belmont stakes for the first time in 2018 and saw a triple crown. One of the best sporting events I’ve been too.

    And yes, I do love dem Ponies!

    I guess they’re going with a more industrial look like the track as apposed to the more modern look. I don’t hate that. Much better than the spaceship looking Barclays and new coliseum
