There are some singles in both the Cornell and Michigan fan sections for $25 each. I pulled up 1 in the last row of the 400's in the Michigan fan section and 1 in the 200's in the Cornell fan section (213 row 11 to be exact) each at $25. You could buy them at MSG too to avoid fees if that's what you want to do. Looks like there's no pairs left though.

I've only been to MSG once, but not the arena. I went to the Theatre to see a play. Are they also renovating it?

That picture looks like they are there.

I got a tour of the Garden the other day. Took 5 pics before I had to conserve battery.

This is from row 17 of a section. I believe it was Section 212. I shot from 17 because that's the row they gave us as season ticket holders as an equivalent to the 400s, row C. It did feel slightly closer than before:


I know it's been seen before but here's the color of the blue seats. They are about 2 shades brighter than what this shot lets on:


This gives a better idea of the brightness. It definitely looked pretty cool.


This is from a wheelchair seating area at the end of the blue seats. I believe it was even with row 15 or 16 of the 200s.


This is also from that viewing area but I took it to show the steepness. I went up to the last row of the 200s too. It wasn't really a bad seat. Just be warned that behind the last row they informed me that that was a previously non-existent 11th floor. Kind of interesting.


As you can see, no cup holders. Legroom was about the same I'd say. But the best parts of it were the concourses where they really did an amazing job with the historical aspects. Almost like a museum in a way with great exhibits.

This was posted in the last thread showing there are cup holders. So maybe they're only in on one side of the arena/in the lower rows?

Without a doubt bigger. Much like that of the 6th floor. There is at least one place for concessions in the 400s that I saw. Don't think there are bathrooms but could be wrong. Behind the 200s there are a few more concessions. Behind the last row of seats there are bolted barstool seats. So I guess that's the real last row.

The whole thing is seemingly still a construction site. I believe one of the towers is not close to ready and I believe they said they hope to have it on line for 12-12-12. Lots of the suites are not ready and are in the process of being built and having seats added. Certain parts of the 8th floor concourse do not have ceilings placed yet. Madison Club seats were awesome. For that money of course they'd better be. 24oz. beers are $10.25 for those interested. Not sure if that changed from last year. And weirdly, hot dogs are $6, but footlongs are $6.50. Hard to remember other prices.

The Frozen Apple

I'm going to the Cornell-Michigan game tomorrow. As a fellow Rangers and Cornell fan, I will take plenty of photos of the new upper deck and concourse -- not only for my self -- but for the rest of the Rangers fans who has no idea when the Rangers/NHL season will start again. Wait til tomorrow night/Sunday morning when I post them.

Went to the game tonight. They did a hell of a job with the place. A lot of unfinished stuff on the Garden Concourse and a lot of suites unfinished on the 7th floor but the arena looks great. Roamed around the upper level and the view are amazing. No more blind spots in the 200's and it's high and close enough where you can see everything but not feel like you're in another county watching the game. Just the right balance IMO. I have some pictures that I will get around to putting up here once I send em to my computer from my iPhone.

Also, the bridge cut off to see the entire scoreboard is row 11-12ish based on what I saw. For my seats in row 15, the upper part of the scoreboard may be cut off. Though you will be able to see the entire ice, I could see it being a problem at the top.

Went to the Cornell Michigan game tonight as well. Sat 225 row 14. Excellent view. The concourse upstairs is fantastic. They did a great job.

Thanks for pics NYRF218.

Did you get a chance to check out the Gallery row 1 seats? I'm concern about the glass in front of them.
