A long time ago... in a galaxy far far away....

One was able to enter thr Garden from the 7th Avenue councourse (where everyone enters now) along with:

1. The direct escalators from Penn Station (where the old taxi-way was)
2. Eighth Avenue and 33rd St. (Tower B)
3. Eighth Avenue and 31st St. (Tower C)

Those escalators were GREAT in getting you into Penn Station in a hurry after a game... but no more. 9/11 changed that. The Garden probably feels it isn't worth it to staff the extra entrances with security.
