Madison Square Garden has hosted many great concerts including Bruce Springsteen's. We were there and no regrets. It was awesome! Like a mayhem.
There is always something on. Live like a New Yorker and be part of it while you are here. Buy those tickets!
Madison Square Garden is a huge arena known for being where the New York Knicks basketball team play their home games, as well as the New York Rangers ice hockey team. Many major boxing fights have also taken place here.
Everyday during lunch if the weather permits I unsheath my upper half and let it see the sun while laying in the grass. The skin darkens as various views are surrounding me. The park is really well manicured, and the grass patches are lush, and make for great napping conditions. Theres a new food stand there called the Shake Shack which is made famous by the Danny Meyer restauranteer.
The home to the NY Knicks (basketball) and the NY Rangers (Hockey), the garden has seen every kind of entertainment and sporting event, to include boxing matches (Ali and Frazier) to political National Conventions.
The current building is the fourth version of the garden which began in 1879.
The Garden is located adjacent Penn station, so it is easy to get to by train or subway
We had crossed this building a few times without knowing what it was, suddenly the day before we left, we saw the sign of Madison square garden lol, we nearly miss it lol
If you're looking for a quieter park, then head to Madison Square. It's a small park where you can pass the time reading a book and watching the people walk past.
