Elite show-jumping competition coming to Barclays Center in 2013, with 200 horses stabled in tents "just outside" (where?)
Atlantic Yards Report
"[J]ust outside" suggests space in the rather small footprints of the apartment towers to be built adjacent to the arena.
Or maybe they'll use the small lot just east of Sixth Avenue on Dean Street.
Or will they close down the plaza that's supposed to be a public amenity?
You know what "edgy" Brooklyn needs? Rich people who ride pretty horses at exclusive champagne-fueled events. Fortunately, the Gucci Masters horse-jumping competition is coming to the Barclays Center in 2013, and organizers are using the opportunity to trot out as many trite Brooklyn cliches they can think of.
Crain's NY Business, Brooklyn jumps ahead
