Madison Square Garden
4 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, NY 10001, United States
Madison Square Garden is one of the world’s most famous sports and entertainment stadiums. Dubbed the Garden, the 1960s-era indoor arena stands on the site of the much-lamented Beaux Arts Pennsylvania Station. The Garden hosts around 320 events a year, and is the home of the New York Rangers hockey, New York Knicks basketball, and New York Liberty women’s basketball teams. You can also catch circus acts, athletics meets, dog shows, conventions, lacrosse, wrestling, boxing, or a rock concert. MSG got a big boost in 2013 with the completion of a years-long renovation that revamped the seating bowl and added a few unique features, but the aura of a big-time arena remains.
MSG is one of the only arenas in which you have to go up from street level to reach the event level and seating bowl. Five levels up, in fact, just to reach the event level, which most patrons do by taking one of four series of escalators stationed at each corner of the arena. So in that regard, it really befits the vertical nature of Manhattan, though once you get into the concourses, it feels just like any other arena. Maybe you’d expect something flashier out of the interior of “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” but one thing MSG does do well is honor its storied history through displays on its concourses.
