Did you know that New York City is currently on its FOURTH Version of Madison Square Garden? True enough: Four Venues in four different locations throughout the city.
The latest construction of "The World's Greatest Arena" opened in 1968, but the original was built waaaayyy back in 1879! It's a little trivia that most people don't know. The arena we have now is probably destined to remain for a long time and is currently undergoing a significant renovation.
The MSG Co. offers a great program called "The All Access Tour for Madison Square Garden" but unfortunately they are not offering the tours while they undergo renovations through 2011.
