Tips

  • Avoid the long wait out front, use the northeast entrance at the corner of Atlantic Avenue & Fort Greene Place with much shorter lines.
  • Check behind the Nets' bench during the game. You may see part-owner, Jay-Z.
  • Here to see Jay-Z? Throw your diamond in the sky. Here for a Nets game? Might as well throw your diamond in the sky. Here for Barbra Streisand? Fuck it, throw your diamond in the sky
  • This is the home of Brooklyn Nets. Find Brooklyn Nets on Foursquare https://foursquare.com/brooklynnets
