Madison Square Garden

Madison Square Garden, often abbreviated as MSG and known colloquially as The Garden, is the name of the arena in Manhattan, New York City, located at 8th Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets, situated on top of Pennsylvania Station. This is actually the fourth Garden, and its construction involved the demolition of Penn Station's massive, ornate train shed. In July 2013, the City of New York gave the Garden ten years to find a new home, so that the station can be rebuilt.
