I'm originally from Nassau County, the first hockey game I ever went to was Isles vs Habs at the Colosseum, Brooklyn is a challenge but Nassau deserves this, there's a reason I left that place as soon as I was able to. Queens would have been ideal since Brooklyn is traditionally a Rangers market without the hockey appeal that basketball had for the Nets, but this should help the league long term.

Now time to move Phoenix.
What's the neighborhood like near Barclay Center?
