The New York Islanders recent move to Brooklyn has left many Long Island residents longing for their return. Those who favor building a new arena believe the vacant 28-acre, state-owned, south parking lot, next to Belmont Park is well-situated near the LIRR and close to major highways. Those against this location feel the Coliseum is already available and the proposed location is better suited as a mixed use development with rental housing.
