Slideshow - Press access tour of the new NYCB Live Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The new 416,000 sq ft. venue has gone through a lot of changes in the past two years. Inside, wooden panels have been installed to cover most of the areas that were exposed concrete and over 10,000 gallons of paint has been used. Other upgrades include new exterior glass storefront, redesigned concourse and main entrance, all new seating, revamped bathrooms and concessions and more space inside the venue so you don't have to miss any action when walking around. Check out our article in the East Meadow Herald next week for the full story!
