The New York Raiders, intended by the fledging World Hockey Association to be their flagship franchise, was initially slated to play in the brand-new Nassau Coliseum. However, Nassau County didn't consider the WHA a professional league and wanted nothing to do with the Raiders. Nassau County retained William Shea to get an NHL team to play in the new building.

The Coliseum is also used for concerts, large exhibitions and shows of various kinds, as well as trade shows (44,000 square feet at the main arena, 60,000 at the Expo Center). Long Island native Billy Joel is one of the Coliseum's most prolific tenants, holding multiple shows at his hometown arena over the course of his tours. For a time in the mid-nineties, he even had his own "retired number" banner, along with those of Islander greats, hanging from the rafters to commemorate his many Coliseum sellouts.

The Nassau Coliseum opened in 1972 and previously hosted minor league hockey prior to the awarding of the Islanders franchise, a gimmick brought back in 2005, when the Islanders-affiliated Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL) played two "home games" at the Coliseum in the absence of NHL hockey due to the lockout. It originally had a capacity of 12,000 to 15,000 depending upon the event, but in the early 1980s the maximum capacity was increased to around 18,000. Currently it seats 16,234 for hockey, up to 17,760 for concerts and 17,686 for boxing and wrestling. 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday. ...

Despite the obvious flaws of the outdated facility, the Coliseum is still considered to be one of the toughest arenas for opposing players, primarily because of the intensity of the crowd noise that echoes around the interior. For example, during the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in 2002, in which the Islanders squared off against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Islanders won all three games played at home in a series dominated by home-ice advantage, as Toronto won all four of their home games. Eastern Conference is one of two conferences in both the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League. ... For album titles with the same name, see 2002 (album). ...

Redevelopment

The Coliseum is currently the third-oldest arena in active use by an NHL team (after Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena and Madison Square Garden,) and is generally considered to be obsolete. Knowing that the arena was deteriorating, officials announced in 2004 an ambitious plan to renovate the coliseum, instead of building a whole new arena. The centerpiece of the project would be a 60 story tower designed to look like a lighthouse. Other plans include new housing units (including affordable housing units), athletic facilities, a new minor league baseball stadium, restaurants, and a new hotel. The project would also include trees, water and other natural elements to the area to replace the sea of concrete plus adding many other things to the area, at a projected overall cost of approximately $200 million..[1] Mellon Arena. ... Madison Square Garden, often abbreviated as MSG, known colloquially simply as The Garden, has been the name of four arenas in New York City, United States. ...


Due to public complaints, and the 2004-05 NHL lockout, little progress has been made on this proposal. This has led the Islanders to discuss building a new arena in neighboring Suffolk County. Other possibilities may include Brooklyn, where the Nets are building an arena, or leaving the metropolitan area outright. Suffolk County is a county located in the U.S. state of New York. ... Brooklyn (named for the Dutch city Breukelen) is one of the five boroughs of New York City. ...


Trivia

  • During the New York Islanders run of four consecutive Stanley Cup Championships in the early-1980's, Nassau Coliseum was proudly referred to as "Fort Neverlose" by fans of the team.
  • Lately, fans of rival teams have started using the moniker "Nassau Mausoleum" to describe the deteriorating conditions of the building.
  • Due to the crosstown rivalry between the Islanders and Rangers who play in the same conference and division, the arena is often nicknamed "Garden East", as Rangers fans often make up 50% of the attendance during these rivalry games. Of the other New York City major league sports teams, MLB's Yankees and Mets are in different leagues and the NFL's Jets and Giants are in different conferences, giving them little opportunity to play each other.
  • Pink Floyd recorded and filmed their concert film and album Delicate Sound of Thunder at the Coliseum in August of 1988. The Coliseum was also one of only two US venues chosen to perform in their limited run of shows in support of their 1979 album The Wall in February of 1980. One of the shows was filmed and bootlegged and has been traded back and forth by fans for years.
  • This arena was given the nickname "Bust Palace" in 1972, for all of the drug arrests at all of the Rock concerts held there, according to talk show host Alex Bennett.
  • During various times throughout the summer, Jehovah's Witnesses, use the arena to hold their annual District Conventions.
  • Both Phish and the Grateful Dead frequently played here and have both released live albums recorded at Nassau: the Grateful Dead (Go To Nassau), Phish (4-2-98, 4-3-98, 2-28-03 of the Live Phish Series).
  • Scenes for 2007's Music and Lyrics starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore were filmed at the arena.
  • The parking fields are often used from March through October for Autocross events by such auto clubs like: The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), The BMW Car Club of America (BWMCCA) NY chapter, and The Porsche Club of America (PCA). These events take place usually in Lot 8 on Saturdays and Sundays from 9AM till 3-5PM. The events are open to anyone with roadworthy automobile (although club membership garners lower entrance fees).
