Teaneck Armory at 1799 Teaneck Road is an armory and arena located on a 13.66-acre (55,300 m2) site in Teaneck, New Jersey. It is owned and operated by the New Jersey National Guard. From 1967-68, the arena was the home of the New Jersey Americans of the American Basketball Association, the team that later became today's Brooklyn Nets.

In 1968, the Americans were forced to forfeit a playoff game against the Kentucky Colonels because a circus group had rented the armory that week and the alternate location selected for the game, Long Island Arena in Commack, New York, had a floor in such poor condition that it was deemed unplayable.
