The Steinberg Wellness Center, formally known as the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center (WRAC), is a 2,500-seat multi-purpose arena in Brooklyn, New York. It was built in 2006 and is home to the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds men's basketball team. The Blackbirds previously played their home games at the Schwartz Athletic Center. The Steinberg Wellness Center hosted the finals of the 2011 Northeast Conference men's basketball tournament. Following President David Steinberg's retirement in Spring 2013, the WRAC was renamed the Steinberg Wellness Center to honor his 27-year tenure as President.
