[WATCH] The Truck Elevators and Turntable Underneath Barclays Center in Brooklyn

The Barclays Center has the smallest footprint of any major sports arena in the United States. There’s no street-level loading areas for deliveries or staging for concerts/events, so all trucks go into giant elevators to the loading docks below ground. Since there is so little space to maneuver, a giant steel turntable orientates the trucks to the proper loading docks and then back into the elevator while also allowing the truck to face the street on its way out.
