Madison Square Garden
Time Out says
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.
