A dividing line between sections 108 and 109 in the concourse of Breslin Center currently serves as an odd portal of time and place. It's the infield gravel in Field of Dreams. It's the DeLorean hitting 88 miles per hour in Back to the Future. On one side, there's the cold, concrete jungle of yesteryear. Breslin was opened in 1989 and has aged like the Ford Probe. On the other side, a sleek, faux granite floor rolls through a spacious, contemporary concourse with modish signage. The colors -- clean green and white with black definition -- are vivid. The amenities have amenities.
