Today the Municipal Art Society named the year-old Barclays Center a 2013 MASterworks Winner for being a "Neighborhood Catalyst." The distinction may be somewhat vague, but it's certainly fitting. Even before the arena opened in September 2012, the surrounding neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, and Fort Greene started to see changes, but now that construction is underway on the first residential tower of Atlantic Yards, new development will no doubt increase. Property values are increasing, new retailers and restaurants are moving in, and old stores are being replaced with new buildings. For this microhood map, we charted the changes happening in the blocks closest to the arena. There's likely a property or two that we missed, so leave a comment or hit up the tipline if you know something that we don't.
