Barclays Center, a massive indoor arena in Brooklyn, is the second biggest venue in New York City besides Madison Square Garden. The multi-purpose space is part of a $4.9 billion entertainment and residential complex called Pacific Park. It's the home of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team and the New York Islanders hockey team. It's also very easy to get to as it's located next to Atlantic Terminal, which is served by almost every subway in New York City as well as the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR).

Tickets for Children

There's a general policy on tickets for kids (see below) but family shows geared specifically toward children may have a different age policy. Here's the general policy:

For Sporting Events & "Most Concerts": Kids 2 years of age and younger do not require a ticket to be admitted into the Barclays Center. But they must sit on an adult’s lap and may not occupy a seat.

Children age 3 and above need their own ticket to enter the arena and must occupy their ticketed seat only.

The policy says, "children up to 34” inches in height may enter Barclays Center free of charge but must share a seat with an accompanying ticketed adult.
