The old buildings rocked like a mother******
They do, but sadly, nothing lasts forever. Even if they stayed in Nassau and wound up in a new building there, that electrifying atmosphere would be gone there too. However, from what I've heard about Barclays, it doesn't have those high ceilings like a lot of other new arenas do. So, maybe there's a possibility that it will be louder than some of its contemporaries?
Look, if the Yankees can move into a new stadium and "dispose" of all the memories built in the old Yankee Stadium, then so can any team in any sport (and I say this as a Mets fan).
