Inside Madison Square Garden’s Construction (PHOTOS)
The World’s Most Famous Arena gets a makeover.
The New York Knicks’ home is getting a complete top to bottom renovation. Phase 1 was completed almost two years ago, and earlier this week, Madison Square Garden revealed new photos of the final phase’s Chase Bridges. These special seats offer a unique view of all the on-court action. More details from MSG below:
“In a nod to New York City’s many renowned suspension bridges, the Chase Bridges are suspended from The Garden’s iconic ceiling by 24 (north bridge) and 26 (south bridge) steel tube hangers. First-class food and beverage options are steps away from the seats, including MSG Signature Collection offerings from top New York chefs and restaurateurs. The Chase Bridges include colors, design elements and curving forms that compliment and seamlessly integrate with the distinctive interior architecture of The Garden’s bowl. Each bridge is 233 feet long and 22 feet wide, and together they weigh a total of 662 tons. The two bridges combined will seat 430 fans for New York Knicks and New York Rangers games; a limited number of individual tickets are still available via NYKnicks.com and NYRangers.com. Seating on the bridges will also be available for select concerts and other events at The Garden, depending upon event set-up.”
