Jay Z inaugurated his home borough's new arena with a string of triumphant shows last fall, wearing a Brooklyn Nets jersey as he joined the crowd in toasting "a celebration of the place where I'm from." Barclays is the first major sports arena in Brooklyn – and it's quicky become a major draw, attracting acts like the Stones, Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, Rihanna, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix and more.

Capacity: 19,000
