Sports Venues - Madison Square Garden

When talking about great sports venues, Madison Square Garden has to be near the top of the list. Home of the New York Knicks and Rangers, the Garden is known as the “world’s most famous arena.” If you wanna watch sports in a place with so much history and tradition, then you gotta go to the Garden!

Madison Square Garden – History

The original Madison Square Garden opened in 1879 and was built mainly for track cycling. The Garden moved two more times around Manhattan, before the fourth and current one opened in 1968. The arena is located in central Manhattan on top of Penn Station, which is one of New York City’s major train stations.

Madison Square Garden – Knowledgeable Hoops Fans

The Garden has long been a favorite place for NBA players to play in, whether they were playing for the Knicks or were one of the opposing players. Michael Jordan has always given props to the Garden, calling it the “Mecca of basketball.” The fans at the Garden are considered to be the most knowledgeable basketball fans in the world. The Garden hosts several college basketball tournaments as well, including the Big East Tournament.

Madison Square Garden – Atmosphere

The Garden may not have some of the features that new, modern arenas have, but you cannot beat the atmosphere. The loud fans, who trash talk to the celebrities who frequent games, are sometimes more entertaining than the game you came to watch! At Knicks games you can count on seeing celebs like Spike Lee, Denzel Washington and the Olsen Twins.

Madison Square Garden – 50 Greatest Moments

In 2006, officials of the arena started a campaign where they ranked the 50 Greatest Moments at Madison Square Garden. The list became a popular segment for TV. Among the events that were in the top 10, were the 1970 NBA Championships, in which the Knicks won, and the Rangers winning the 1994 Stanley Cup. Some non-sports related events that made the list were the Pope visiting the Garden and Elvis performing there.
