In Brooklyn, a proud, centuries-old borough, anything or anyone new that arrives has to be impressive, representing the best of the community. Luckily, the Barclays Center is more than impressive - it is built to last as long as the city itself! Opened in 2012, it is one of the newest stadiums in the country, a modern coliseum taking cues from Brooklyn’s famous Brownstone houses through its use of weathering steel, which will gain the color of the sandstone as the years march onwards. However, Barclays Center parking will still be difficult, as hosting the newly-rechristened Brooklyn Nets basketball team (sorry, New Jersey), as well as the Islanders in 2015, will certainly bring in the crowds to this indoor stadium. Already having hosted concerts for Jay-Z, the Rolling Stones and Green Day, along with boxing and WWE wrestling matches, the youthful arena has started very strong. In the Spring of 2013, the Barclays Center hosted the graduation ceremony for the Polytechnic Institute of NYU, firmly intertwining it with the destiny of those who will live and work in the borough. If parking for a college graduation is difficult, think about a sold-out concert or the first Nets game of the season, or other Barclays Center events! If a fan happens to show up late, right when the game is going to start, where would they park? By making use of ParkWhiz, anyone needing Barclays Center parking for an event, whether it be hockey, basketball, soccer or a concert can rest easy by getting their parking pass in advance.
The brownstone-styled Oculus near the entrance of the Barclays Center is a beautiful piece of avant-garde, but the odyssey of the Brooklyn Nets is just as inspiring - a triumph of a team to return to its home in New York. As one of the first members of the short-lived American Basketball Association, the team began as the New Jersey Americans, a short-lived phase before coming of age as the New York Nets. After getting accustomed to the Empire State, the Nets won two ABA championships and one division title, making use of their own unique style and the gracious help of “Dr. J.” After the ABA merged with the NBA, the Nets were exiled to New Jersey. With the Nets parking into their new home, they almost slipped into obscurity before winning NBA division titles in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2006 until finally in 2012, they moved back to New York. Though not as old as the Brooklyn Bridge or the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch, the Barclays Center has become a part of Brooklyn, just like the Nets. Other teams are making the journey to Barclays - the New York Islanders NHL team is attempting to rebuild their Stanley Cup dynasty in the brownstone borough, moving from Uniondale. And the Brooklyn Knights will be parking in Brooklyn from Queens. No matter what team or event is going on, Barclays Center parking will always be difficult if a sports fan doesn’t have their ticket in advance. However, one won’t have to take a rain check because of parking if they let ParkWhiz do the work for them and get a Barclays Center parking pass.
ParkWhiz is very easy to use: find your event, print your ticket and park in a pre-booked spot. Everyone else will ask if you had to sell someone a bridge in New York, but if they think you had to spend a lot of money, tell them to fuhgeddaboudit!

How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases!
