In class we were exposed to the Atlantic Yards development in Brooklyn a borough of New York City. This paper will compare Atlantic Yards to Los Angeles Stadium plan. Major League sports teams fuel growth and development in our country’s major cities. The changing sports landscape can be due to replacement of failing stadium infrastructure or the need of a new stadium to house a major league team that is new to the city. In the case of Atlantic Yards, Barclay Center allowed for a larger development that is closer in proximity to the city and is the home stadium for the Brooklyn Nets and New York Islanders. The development of Los Angeles Stadium is fueled by the desire to bring the National Football League back to the City of Angels.
