Madison Square Garden - New York, NY

No longer located in Madison Square, The Garden is home to the NHL’s New York Islanders and the NBA’s New York Knicks. It’s the fourth venue of the same name and lies in Midtown Manhattan directly over Penn Station between 7th and 8th avenues from 31st to 33rd Street. The Garden holds events roughly 320 nights out of the year and is considered the fifth busiest music venue in the world. It regularly hosts college basketball, boxing, ice shows, professional wrestling, circuses and several other events. Countless concerts have occurred at The Garden, including shows by Elton John, Phish and Adele. It opened in 1968 and is the oldest NHL arena still in use.

The Garden has a capacity of 19,812 for basketball games and 18,006 for hockey, with six different levels in total. Many accessibility options are offered by the venue, but seating is limited to specific sections.

Many artists have praised the acoustics and the sound system within the Garden as being one of the best in the country. The scoreboard that hangs over center ice is made up of four 15.7’ x 28’ HD video screens.

Due to its location in Manhattan, the venue does not have any parking designated nearby. While parking is limited, the Garden sits on top of Penn Station and can be accessed not only via the New York Subway system, but also through metro-area rail networks.

Several bars and restaurants are located both throughout the venue and in the surrounding Midtown area. You can find concession stands and free Wi-Fi on every level.

Before you can enter the venue, you’ll have to pass a security checkpoint. The following items are prohibited: outside food and drink, professional video or audio recording equipment, anything that inappropriately restricts the view of other patrons, selfie sticks and large bags.
