I'm happy for them.
I wonder if it'll attract other sports franchises to Belmont Park, like a third NBA team in New York (not the Nets because they'll be a fixture at Barclays Center) or NLL.
But from what I understand it's going to be strictly for the Islanders. But nonetheless I'm excited for Islanders fans, they truly deserve this.
I second this, division rival or not, it’s epically stressful as a fan having unstable ground under your team in terms of an arena. As a Penguins fan, at least in this area toward the Isles and their fans I have nothing but empathy. In every other way they can go F themselves But I am glad their arena problems will be coming to an end.
YEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!!! Tear down those trees! Stupid things who needs em?
Good for the Isles; good for the league.
There's going to be a pic on twitter very soon with the honda in a corner. Someone with da fotoshop skillz will do it.
"YOU MOVED THE HEADSTONES...BUT YOU DIDN'T MOVE THE BODIES!!!!"
Is this a convenient spot for the arena to be ?
Oh god here we go.
Looks like a nice stadium project, at least architecture wise.
It's located right next to a park, close to highway access and it even seems to have it's own rail/metro station. Plus, the architecture and landscape design seems to integrate well with the bordering surroundings, referring to the brick house architecture of a former industrial and working class neighbourhood (no idea if this was ever true or if it's just a nice looking fake).
Aside from this there seem to be the usual concerns that projects of this dimension usually have. As an outsider, while it's not perfect, it could also be a lot worse. At least there will be created many jobs and a lot of annual public revenue as well and not just privatized profit.
Good, I like the Isles. Hopefully they can break in that new building in style.
Get a job, tree hugger.
Lol someone's in a good mood. The 2000 hours a year I do ain't enough for ya?
Congratulations Islanders fans, you guys have earned it.
It's actually a good size area. The size of the race track and the land in general make it look small. Hotels don't need large footprints. It's not a resort, so all they need is the space for the building.
Congrats I hope this is completed in a timely manner and is an enjoyable fan experience.
This last rendering can't be right. This has a massive retail village covering the entire parking lot. The retail village is supposed to be way smaller and cover the area where the hotel is in this picture and that surrounding area. The hotel is/was supposed to be between the grandstand of the racetrack and the current train station. Has that changed?
