Topic - Prudential Center

Prudential Center is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the central business district of Newark, New Jersey. The arena was designed by Populous (formerly HOK Sport), with the exterior designed by Morris Adjmi Architects. Opened in 2007, it is the home of the National Hockey League's New Jersey Devils, the NCAA's Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball team, and is the temporary home of the Women's National Basketball Association's New York Liberty during the "Transformation" of Madison Square Garden and the National Basketball Association's New Jersey Nets until the new Barclays Center opens in Brooklyn. The arena seats 17,625 patrons for hockey and 18,711 for basketball. Fans and sports writers have affectionately nicknamed the Prudential Center "The Rock" in reference to the Rock of Gibraltar, the corporate logo of Prudential Financial, a Fortune Global 500 and Fortune 500 financial institution that owns the naming rights to the arena and is headquartered within walking distance. - Source: Wikipedia
