The NY Islanders recent move to Brooklyn has left a void of professional sports on Long Island. There is now discussion to build a new arena at Belmont Park to bring the Islanders home. Those in support feel it's a great location with access to public transportation. Those against say a new arena isn't the best use of the vacant land and the Coliseum in Hempstead should be retrofitted for professional hockey. Should a new arena for the NY Islanders be built at Belmont Park?

Great idea, as long as those making all the money are willing to pay for it!

You dont say public or priv funds.

Because that matters. Can the area really support another arena? I have a better idea, why did NC refurb Nassau Col and now its not attractive to a NHL franchise? So now its just another concert hall for occasional use and absurd $40 parking. Dandy.
