Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

UPDATE: MSG is closed until further notice.

"The Madison Square Garden Company supports Governor Cuomo’s decision regarding New York venues. We encourage you to check back to this site, which will be your source for further details about our future events, which we will update regularly as more information becomes available," they stated on their website.

Big, beloved and not-so-beautiful MSG is perhaps the most famous sports arena in the world. Perched above Penn Station since 1968, the 20,000-seat venue is not only home to New York basketball and ice hockey teams the Knicks and the Rangers, but also is a favorite spot for college basketball tournaments (The Big East), professional boxing, MMA fighting and as a destination for WWE. Non-sports fans, however, mainly know the Garden as the best spot in town to catch touring international sensations like Adele, Beyonce and Aziz Ansari and countless other amazing concerts. To learn about the history of the arena, which existed in several other iterations at other locations for the past 130 years, check out the All-Access Tour ($30, seniors and students $26, group rates available), which stops in the arena bowl and takes visitors to exhibits featuring images and paraphernalia from iconic moments in sports and performance history.
