Haute 100 NY Update: Neighbors Fume As Jay-Z Plans 40/40 Club In Barclay’s Center

Jay-Z has announced plans for an offshoot of his Manhattan nightclub 40/40 in the Barclays Center, the sports arena and entertainment complex due in Brooklyn this fall, and neighbors aren’t happy about it.

Residents unsuccessfully lobbied to scrap the plans, which include the new 18,200 seat arena for the Brooklyn Nets.
