Panorama cam on the earth cam site is also working now. It hadn't been working previously for me at least.

I grabbed this from today's webcam shot. On the right side is that new steel that's gone up? Maybe the start of the new upper bowl?

Yea thats exactly what that is...the new steel is being laid out for the upper bowl. You can see it starts where from where the suites will be

It definitely looks steeper, but I cant see how that is 26 rows, or however many rows the entire 200s are. I think in the center is the deepest point. We will tell as the earth cam progresses towards the middle. I hate how it is a week behind, but its pretty cool now that were starting to see phase 2 actually take shape

They said it was supposed to be 17 degrees steeper than what it used to be IIRC.

Thanks. It definitely looks steeper than the lower bowl...but it's still hard to tell with only a couple pieces of steel in thus far.

As of now it looks that way. Stubhub and thegarden.com didn't update the schedule, but they both have Madonna as the first event, but that's on November 12th.

Does anyone remember when they announced the dates of the concerts that came before the home opener?

I also find it hard to believe that the Knicks won't have preseason home games. Figured that would be an easy cash grab for Dolan.

I posted a couple pages back that someone I know who's working on the renovations told me they have a finish date of Oct. 23rd I believe because there's a concert that night. I'm sure like last year they'll still have some ongoing things beyond that and into the season but from what I was told, the building needs to be functional by that day.

While they did have two concerts to reopen the building, they treated the home opener like it was the first event there.

cant grab a screen shot, but it looks like about half of the new upper bowl steel is now in place. you can also see just how large the 8th floor concourse is going to be. they have put new steel in some places and it will easily be double (in most places) to triple the size of the old concourse.
