Madison Square Garden
New York, NY 10001
Village Voice's Description
They call it "the world's most famous arena" for good reason: it boasts the biggest pop acts in the world (Bruce Springsteen will bring his E Street Band nowhere else). But if huge concerts aren't your bag, MSG's truly got something for everyone: hockey (the Rangers), basketball (the Knicks), boxing matches, and, on occasion, the circus.
Tips from foursquare
Opened in 1968, it is the longest active major sporting facility in the Metropolitan area & is the 4th incarnation of the arena in the city. The Garden hosts approximately 320 events a year.
This 42-year-old arena is preparing to undergo a wholesale overhaul for $775-$850 million. It'll include floor-level luxury suites and two pedestrian bridges suspended over the playing surface.
You've made it to the Garden! The world's most famous arena is perfect for our fave sport: celeb spotting. If you see star fans like Hugh Jackman and Beyoncé, send a virtual high-five their way.
Fanatic Fact: After winning the 1994 Stanley Cup, Brian Leetch became the first American player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.
Jay-Z knows this venue well.
