THE BARCLAYS CENTER'S DELIBERATE RUST FACADE MAY EVENTUALLY CAUSE ITS DOWNFALL
F***ed in Park Slope
Did you hear that the Barclays Center is Rusting?
Neither had I, so I took to the streets to see for myself. As I walked down 5th Ave, pausing to stop at a few favored watering holes, I thought, surely this must be an egregious rumor that bears little truth, because why would a brand new arena that hasn't even opened yet already appear aged with rust?!
Boy, was I wrong. Turns out, the damn thing is actually covered in rust! There it stands, larger than life in Brooklyn’s busiest shitshow of an intersection, with a woven pattern of rusted metal that, as it turns out, is deliberate.
