Soon there will be many more people saying, ‘Hello Brooklyn!’

It took nine years, but the Barclays Center is finally finished. Most of you know it as the new home of the Brooklyn Nets, however those guys won’t be touching the court until November 1st. Until then, Jay-Z will be holding two concerts there and he is definitely “On To The Next One,” because this billion-dollar stadium is being hailed as “the most high-tech stadium in sports.”

The stadium is outfitted with free Wi-Fi and as an added bonus for smartphone owners, there is an app that lets fans order and pay for food from their seats without having to stand in concession lines. There’s also 8,000 square feet of LED signage, including a three-story tall 1080p center-hung scoreboard and the highlight feature of the entire stadium: the Oculus, a 360-degree LED marquee that encircles the outer pavilion.

Food-wise there’s no lack of options. Not only is there a Fatty ‘Cue barbeque, Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, and Brooklyn Cupcakes located in the stadium, on the second level, there’s an outpost of Jay-Z‘s 40/40 Club.  Although the music mogul was not on hand for the opening, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz, and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov all came out to celebrate the opening of the Barclays Center.
