409 had a nice view. It was cool to watch all of the fast breaks from that high up but if you don't really get into basketball, you won't get into these seats. These are the type of seats that the organization sells to a lot of groups and churches at a discounted rate because alot of the seats go unsold, especially on weeknights. For the most part, you can buy seats at the very top of 409 and sit a little lower and no one will say anything. We did this when we sat here and no one came to our row to ask us to move.

Getting to your seats can be a little tricky. You have to take one of the escalators from the main concourse to the top level; the escalators don't stay as packed as you'll find in other NBA arenas. The 7th street entrance always seems to be the slowest to get into but the 6th street entrance moves very quickly with security.

To give you an idea what the view of the court is like from section 409, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a break at a Wizards game.
