Williamsburg Bank Building and Barclays Center

The Williamsburg Bank building in Brooklyn was once the tallest building in the borough.  It is 37 floors and 512 feet high. (The highest building is now the Brooklyner, completed in 2010, which stands at 515 feet high, and 51 floors.)  The old bank building is now luxury condos.

It is also the winter home of Brooklyn Flea.  Last November, it set up house in One Hanson place when it got too cold to have the flea market outdoors.  Looks like it will be the same this year...

Being built nearby is the Barclay Center.  It's location is close to the Atlantic subway station,  with 9 subway lines going thru it and the LIRR, making it one of the most transit accessible locations in the city.

 The first concert series at this venue will be Jay Z on September 28 thru October 6.  All shows were sold out after the first day they went on sale.  He also happens to be part owner of the basketball team that will call Barclay Center home, the Brooklyn Nets.
