 - Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC) and Shanghai-based Greenland Group Co. (Greenland) announced that they will install a green roof on Barclays Center, as seen above. MaryAnne Gilmartin, FCRC President and CEO, explained that in addition to providing a more appealing roof for people visiting the arena, it will also enhance the space for those who will be living in the residential buildings surrounding Barclays Center.

More Barclays News:

- Miley Cyrus, at her “Bangerz” show at the Barclays Center on Saturday night was "so insistently gross — grabbing her crotch constantly, spread-eagling on the hood of a car, and twerking with a steatopygic midget "— she seems determined "to avoid seeming remotely sexy." [New Yorker]

- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame dinner and show scheduled for Thursday at Barclays Center is a "disaster in the making." Cat Stevens' visa is up in the air. No one from  Brian Epstein’s family has been invited, and Andrew Loog Oldham says thanks but no thanks. [Showbiz411]
