We love BAM whether it be for music, theater or performance. Today we saw a production of Julius Caesar which was a live broadcast of a production staged in London. We have enjoyed theater and opera in live broadcasts.

There are lots across from Barclays. I try to find a meter on Atlantic Avenue but it depends on how much time is needed as some meters have time limits.

Totally safe. The Fulton station only has F/G trains but Atlantic station is 1 block away. DeKalb is also fine. Good luck and enjoy!
