Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum
The rapper and music mogul attended a meeting Thursday on Long Island, where the media was briefed on four proposals to renovate the arena and surrounding property.
Mangano believes that a new smaller venue would be more competitive for concerts, minor league sports, and family shows.
With the New York Islanders heading to Barclays Center in Brooklyn in 2015, the search is on for a replacement for the decaying Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
With the hockey team’s announcement it is packing up its sticks and pucks in 2015, the field appears to have widened greatly on the possibilities for developing one of the last large parcels of prime real estate in the heart of Long Island.

George Maragos says he supports development of the county hub, but he’s not ready to endorse the $400 million sports and entertainment complex proposal going to a referendum – at least, not yet.
