'It Was Quite A Journey,' Barclays Center's Yormark Says
May 22, 2013 09:48 PM
“It was quite a journey," said Yormark, adding that the Barclays Center has held 157 events, attracting 1.7 million people since opening with a series of Jay-Z concerts on September 28. "This is a culmination of an incredible journey, and it really is quite humbling."
Having lived through opening an arena in some of the most trying economic times of the last 80 years, Yormark offered this advice to anyone with plans to open an even newer arena: "Adapt to the changes. It will never end up the way it started, which was certainly the case for us more than most. We ended up making a lot of changes along the way, and most were changes for the better."
