Opened in February, 1968, Madison Square Garden is multipurpose oldest active indoor sports ground in midtown Manhattan in New York City. This most expensive stadium is 3rd busiest music arena in terms of ticket sales in the world.
MSG is located on Seventh Avenue between 31st and 33rd streets in New York City
My first even encounter with Madison Square Garden was to see my first NBA Knicks. It was a mind-blowing experience with crowd cheering and going mad and almost over electric spree.
The Garden is mostly used for professional sports like ice hockey, boxing, major concerts, basketball etc. and is home to the New York Knicks, New York Rangers and New York Liberty. With approximately 320 events a year, the Madison Square Garden turns out to be the hottest destination for any sport lover. This arena has witnessed some of greatest boxing matches in history and is a home for boxing itself.
I happened to visit a recent Wisin Y Yandel concert which was again another stupefying experience. Although I had a seat almost at one corner of the stadium; I managed to see the performance pretty well with majestic display screens.
Some of biggest music concerts from Elton John, George Harrison, Justin Bieber and Elvis Presley have happened here. The seating at MSC can accommodate on an average 17000 people in it with unobstructed view from any cranny or angle of the seat. It’s a unique sport entertainment center in New York which keeps its audience roar high and sense the thrill be it during a Hockey match or a concert from a singer or musician. This Garden doesn’t disappoint at any cost as far as entertainment is concerned.
Expensive Food and Bathroom conditions have always been in controversy but that just goes unnoticed with the extravaganza one gets to feel. Friendly staff and amazing sitting experience make this place most visited and desired in New York.
There is no parking facility available from MSG directly however one can choose to take pre-paid parking available at special garages.
At the end, I would say, The Madison Square Garden is a place for one and all. It’s a one roof that gives you 360 degree entertainment.
