RECOMMENDED: What's new and what's best in Brooklyn


The splashy new 19,000-seat Barclays Center has arrived, and it's bringing us the Brooklyn Nets, the borough's first major pro sports team since the Dodgers left in 1957. (Jay-Z is a part owner; he christens the stadium with a run of way-sold-out dates.)

Check out our essential guide to Barclays Center events, plus great restaurants, bars and things to do nearby.
