Bruce Ratner Discusses New Role, Debut Year For Barclays Center
Published April 17, 2013
Ratner, not surprisingly, spoke glowingly about the debut year of Barclays Center. He also addressed the arrival of the Islanders to Barclays Center in '15. While Ratner would not discuss rumors that the club would be leaving Nassau Coliseum a year earlier, he said Islanders Owner Charles Wang made a "heroic decision" to move to Brooklyn as opposed to leaving the N.Y. area altogether. Ratner's company is now bidding to redevelop the Nassau Coliseum property, which he said contained "great possibilities."
