NBA isn't officially locked out for the year. They are still working to save the season. Also college hoops...

2. Nothing major outside of temporarily shutting things done to prepare for work during summer.

3. Next summer - Upper bowl and 8th floor concourse also completely redone. Madison suites (mid level suites) added.

Summer of 2013 - Chase bridges added as well as a fan deck. Lobby completely redone. New Gardenvision scoreboard.

Garden suites (9th floor suites) are also being remodeled but I can't remember if that's next summer or the summer after.
Thanks, is there a website/link that discusses this in full?
Basically, people in the 300 and 400s will see no difference this season?

Depends where you sit. The 300 sections behind the goal have already been renovated, but all 400's and 300's center ice have remained the same.

And also we now have the west end balcony, which is above the 400s. Formerly suites.

I was told today that there will be some sort of construction possibly happening around my section (405) from late-November through December. I don't have any tickets for the games during that time period because they're not sure if I'll have to be moved yet.

So they gave you half a booklet? That doesn't make a lot of sense to do construction during the season.

I'm in 405 as well and as far as I know we have all of our tickets and we haven't been notified of anything. I'm in row A if it makes a difference. I'll have to ask my dad about it since he has the tickets back in Jersey. That's odd though.

West Balcony is open to everyone but I'm not a hundred percent sure of that so don't quote me. Delta 360 club is open to the ticketholders in the three center sections directly behind the benches from about rows 7 or 8 down to the glass. It's also open to those in the folding chair seats behind the goal that the visitors shoot twice at and those that have the seats on the glass (the fans you'll see that just sit up against the glass not in the seating bowl.) All of those seats include all inclusive food and non alcoholic drinks and run from $320 up per game.

In other words it's not for us.

Regarding the party deck(s), told it was open to any ticket holder.

AGrossRecord Andrew Gross
Hockey capacity at new MSG will be approximately the same, per Hank Ratner, Prez and CEO of MSG Co. and today's tour guide.

AGrossRecord Andrew Gross
But same number for hockey capacity at new MSG will include bridge seats so there are about 1,000 fewer seats lower/upper bowl combined.

I got a West Balcony seat for the Sharks on the 31st. It cost $62 plus fees from TM, the same as a 400 seat. I have a feeling those seats are going to be unique and popular. Andrew Gross compared them to the Green Monster seats at Fenway. I don't think they'll be quite that sought after, or expensive, but I doubt they'll cost $62 next year. I'll post my impressions after the Sharks game.

So it sounds like you need a ticket to sit in those seats at the party deck, but anyone can go stand around the party deck. It sounds like the "west end balcony" refers to the seats that you need a ticket for, and the "party deck" is the standing room concourse at the top of the seats that anyone can go to, correct? The pictures confused me a bit though, and Gross said that there will be 2 party decks on either side of the ice. So my questions are 1) the pictured party deck is on the 8th ave side where the rangers shoot twice, right? and assuming they are, 2) are they both gonna be ready this year, or just the one they showed the pictures for? And are they both gonna be the same thing (seats/party deck)? I know there's more luxury boxes on the 7th ave side so I wasn't sure how they were both gonna be constructed and used. I've been following all the renovation threads and seen all the pictures but for some reason I'm still extremely confused about alot of things so I guess I'll just find out finally in person next week

there will be video from inside the garden during this half hour on the news on abc so take a look if anyones interested..

to answer the questions..

1) the pictured party deck is the 8th avenue end and is on the 10th floor

2) the 7th ave side will be done for next season and it will look like the same thing and then the bridges will connect the party decks for the 2013-2014 season

Because the 400's behind the net are limited view. I thought it would be a similar sightline, if not worse, no?

the seats are higher up, thus creating more of a birds eye view, i don't think they will be limited view. also i do not believe the suites that used to be there had limited views.

The lower bowl looks really nice in that last picture of it. I like the idea of the bar-like seats up on the balcony too. It sucks that the bridge and all that won't be done for so long but it should be great when its totally finished.
