MSG Parking, Free. Not kidding you. There is plenty of parking if you are patient enough to just drive around the side streets, and look for a spot. From 7Pm on you can park without paying the meter. Game starts at 7:30 Now of course if we can't find one we will just park in the one of the many lots for about $15.00 But we always get lucky and get a spot and never far away. Tomorrow we will be going to the game and in our new SUV and will be looking 4 free parking. It's like a game to us too see if we can find a free parking spot and save the 20.00 bucks.
Manhattan is my backyard, I know the city like the back of my hand

We have a good laugh too when we find the spot. It's like Yea!!! save 15.00, 20.00 bucks.
The last game we went to was a Bruins Vs Rangers game last season, and we got a spot on 30St and 8th ave. Which is right around the block

If JJ took over the parking is this how he's making up for the free hot dogs?

At any rate, if you don't want to take the T....

Park across the bridge at the Charlestown Navy Yard visitor parking, and then walk under Rutherford Avenue, there's a little tunnel that leads to Paul Revere Park, cross the little park and then walk through the Charles River locks (there are pedestrian bridges across the locks) and you come out right behind the Garden.

Cheap parking and a 5 minute walk.

no idea where my brother is moving to. He just got a job offer from the DoD and has to find a place in the next month and move from the south shore to somewhere down there. Should be interesting for him for sure.

Exactly, I think that is crazy. Forgive me tho, if you got it like that than hey it aint shi!

Also there are times when you just can't find cheaper parking than, but I always find cheaper parking and in NYC. They also have here the coupons that you can print from home

I parked at the Nautica for the scrimmage and tried that route, but there's a gate in the park and it was locked. I don't know if it was just that evening or if it'll be that way from now on, but just a head's up in case people try that. We backtracked and walked over the bridge.

Good luck to him. My brother lived in Georgetown and Arlington (Va.) before moving to Silver Spring. Being near public transport makes life a lot easier because traffic can certainly get crazy.

Jeremy Jacobs should charge whatever the market will allow him to get. That is his right and no one is forcing you to park there or pay that amount.

But it is then fair to point out he doesn't really give a **** about his customers, especially after the lockout.

See, it doesn't have to be all black and white people. It can be fair and reasonable and good business, but he doesn't also have to be a saint.

If you walk on Constitution Ave, past the Marriott (not in front by the water), and under the bridge (not the under the bridge where you are on a baordwalk), you just walk through a dog park to the dam.

He also seemed have relieved the cashiers of their duties inside the Garden. I was there on a Tuesday morning for a bid and they have automated kiosks now.

Pretty sure it is at least 10 mins. As I usually park at Nautca (parked there yesterday). And it took exactly 10 mins from the time I exited the garage till the time I opened the door at N Station. I'm guessing the navy yard is closer to 15 mins than 10. It was cold yesterday at 11 am when I was walking. And I was at a fairly brisk walking pace...still 10 mins. Not a bad walk for anyone not familiar with the city though. Within 30 seconds of exiting the garage you can see the Garden and it is impossible to get lost.

Nautica did go up to $6 though
bwwhhhatttt? it was 4 bucks 3 years ago.. what the hellll. You tell me i have to use my quarters that are stockpiled in my car? haha.

The gate? near the dam? during the winter thats usually locked up. Sometimes usually till around playoff time. I'd probabley just go over the bridge for any games in the next couple months.

I wouldn't know, I was just following a couple who said they knew the way and they were surprised that it was closed.

I got a wee bit confused by the backtracking on the walk back after the game but thankfully my son had been paying attention and found the way OK. He continues to amaze me.

1) Take the T
2) Get to the Garden early, it's around 10 bucks i think
3) park in one of the many garages not far, theres one across the street, and another large one about halfway between quincy market and the garden.

Absurd though, i whole heartedly agree
