    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

    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 an arena that hosts a variety of exciting events. The New York Rangers hockey team and the New York Knicks basketball team play there during the fall, winter, and spring. There are also other sporting events such as boxing and bullriding. Tons of musical acts (Madonna, U2, Oasis, Rascal Flatts, ect.) and comedians (Dane Cook - yay!) have shows there throughout the year as well. Family events such as Sesame Street Live and the Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Circus also can be seen at the Garden at various times throughout the year. Tours of the Garden are also available.

    Going to Madison Square Garden is a must while in New York. The big arena often called as The Garden can seat up to 19.000 people and was built at 34th street and 7th Avenue not far from Penn Station. The building was built in 1925 but there were two previous arenas the first from 1879.

    It is the home of the New York Rangers (NHL), New York Nicks (NBA) and New York Liberty (WNBA) and many other events such as concerts.

    Inside there are several fast food places to grab something to eat while watching the game. Space between rows is really small so don’t take to many things inside (I had to take a big bag inside and was uncomfortable). When the game starts, the first thing is the national anthem so don’t do what I did. When I got to the arena I was starving so I got something to eat. So I was in the middle of the american national anthem trying to get up and juggle a sandwich and the potato chips and the coke it was not very easy.

    The game is a show, besides the NBA game, there are many things happening in the intervals. The screens of the stadium keep pumping support messages, the public goes wild, the music pushes for the public. In the interval there are long shot games, cheerleaders, song contests, and even marriage proposals. Everything happens in Madison Square Garden!

    Be careful where you buy your tickets. There are many forgeries in tickets so purchase them in official places or on the web. I stayed in one of the worst seats but still visibility was nice. The official website (www.thegarden.com) sells tickets.

    There are also many guided tours to the inside of this place known worldwide including by many movies, TV and showbiz stars often appear to games and other events.

    Even if you’re not into sports for me it was a highlight of my trip to New York.

    Just seeing the outside of the place was a kick for me. There is a huge basketball on the top of a building. I had heard about in in many Hollywood movies including Rush Hour 2 when Jackie Chan can't say Madison Square garden in the credits. Inside of course one can watch the famous basketball games starring the New York Knics.

    If you want to see sports-events you should check out this place. The most well known arena in the world. Home of NY Rangers (NHL) and NY Knicks (NBA) and a few more teams.
    Also other events like concerts and figure-skating can be seen here.
    You can also take a All Access Tour which will take you on a guided tour inside the garden.

    I am not into sports so we simply made a stop in front of the Madison Square Garden during our on-foot exploration of the city. After all, you can't go to NYC and not so much as take a look at legendary buildings such as this one.

    So yeah, it's a building - what we were mostly impressed by was the INCREDIBLE number of taxis at the door and the number of people with whistles trying to get more to stop by. If you want an example of the stressed out NYC lifestyle, this is it!

    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.
