Guys, I ain't making this stuff up. Next time you are in the Garden you can look at the ends of the rebuilt 300 section and see where they elevated the seating using metal forms over existing concrete. I am sure there will be some limited demolition and concrete work but they are not tearing out all of the concrete in the 300 and 400 levels and replacing it with new concrete. I've spoke with Garden executives and they have confirmed this. Yes they are making the seating steeper. There is a pencil drawing on The Garden site that shows how the sight lines will change when the seating is elevated.
