The end-side 100s have a worse view for watching the game than the 200s.
As far as parking goes, it exists in decent quantities at private lots right across the street from the arena, but usually costs $20 a game. The team-owned garage is generally only for season-ticket holders. I suggest unless traveling in a large group to take NJ Transit or PATH. NJ Transit is easy if you are transferring from the LIRR (same station). PATH is dirt-cheap and a great option if coming from the city. Both stop at Newark Penn Station about 3 blocks from the arena. Taking public transportation allows you to get hammered safely before/at/after the game as well if that is your thing...
I had a great time on Jan. 19th at the Coliseum for the opener. You Islanders fans are a cheery and knowledgeable bunch. Looking forward to seeing you guys at the Rock on Thursday!
While I like the Rock, the 200's do not provide a better view than the 300's at NVMC.
NVMC has some of , if not the best sight lines in the NHL. Even when NYI move to BK, the 200's are steep there but will be a better view than the Rock .
I have been to the Rock over 10x so far. I have sat in alot of sections, 100's,200's, gold bar, down low in the arena.
Good luck tonight.
