Here is an interior shot if Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Islander fans affectionately refer to her as “The Old Barn”. The coliseum is the oldest facility in operation in the NHL. The coliseum can hold 16,170 hockey fans at capacity. The facility officially opened it’s doors in 1972 but was considered by many as out of date even before it’s completion. The Islanders will officially leave “The Old Barn” after the completion of the 2014-2015 season for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Many speculate the move will commence sooner since the Wall Street Journal has reported the Barclays Center may be offering the Islanders a considerable sum to move sooner.
