Madison Square Garden

Madison Square Garden, often abbreviated as MSG and known colloquially as The Garden, has been the name of four arenas in New York City. It is also the name of the entity which owns the arena and several of the professional sports franchises which play there. There have been four incarnations of the arena: the first two were located at the northeast corner of Madison Square (Madison Avenue and 26th Street) from which the arena derived its name. Subsequently a 17,000-seat Garden (opened December 15, 1925) was built at 50th Street and 8th Avenue, and the current Garden, which opened February 14, 1968, is at 8th Avenue btw 31st and 33rd Streets, situated on top of Pennsylvania Station. One Penn Plaza stands at the side.
