At what time should the stop serving alcohol?
Last week, Community Board 6 during all events at the arena.
However the recommendation, which will go to the New York State Liquor Authority, came with two conditions that follow the policy already in place for the 40 NBA games:
- During all NBA games no alcohol can be sold after the third quarter.
- All alcohol sales cease an hour before the end of any other event.
However, BrooklynSpeaks, a coalition of civic organizations surrounding the arena, has a petition that requests all alcoholic beverage sales be cut off at 10 p.m. at the absolute latest in all areas of the arena, reflecting area residents fear of drunk pedestrians and drivers flooding the streets after the 180 non-NBA events expected next year. In addition, there are four clubs in the buiding that could be open additional nights.
But others argued that the community should not interfere with the arena’s ability to make as much money as it can.
What time do you think Barclays should be required to stop serving alcohol?
