New Subway Exit Opens Near Barclays Center


Subway riders now have a direct route to the Barclays Center in place. A new exit at the Atlantic Avenue subway station opened Monday morning and leads directly to the entrance of the new arena.

The new station includes a 30,000-square-foot plaza lined with paving stones, benches and greenery.

While some locals are excited about the $76 million station, others say they're concerned.

"I live in the neigborhood and I'm worried that with the Barclays Center opening, there's gonna be way more people here and it's gonna be a lot harder for me to get home," said one.
