Question about "Limited Veiw" tickets???(new question! 2nd page)

Hey guys, i just got hooked up with some tickets from a friend for opening night that he just bought for me.

Only thing is the tickets say "limited veiw" on them. Now i really wanted to go so i will take anything, but how limited will the veiw be??? The tickets are in a little mini section, section 401 row a, seats 1-2 .... Anyone know how bad these seats are??? lol
thanks

---Joe

That section is obstructed by a concrete structure over the top of it and to the right, but since you have ROW A seats 1 and 2 i think youll be pretty good. This picture here is from the middle of the section and usually the 400's hang over a bit so IMO i dont think youll be that limited, especially in the first row. But even if you are its not a crazy amount.

Click on "the arena", then change the event to Hockey.

They used to have this same seating chart on the Rangers website but they did away with it this season for some reason...

I didn't know that MSG had "limited view" seats. I remember sitting in the "obstructive view" seats at the old Boston Garden. That was brutal.

I once sat in seat at the Boston Garden that had a structural post 2 rows in front of it.

I'd be surprised if the first row is obstructed at all 92hatch.

Exactly. It was unbelievable the seats they would sell.

If youre a big Rangers fan then any opening night is great...

This year is extra special because its been quite a while since the Rangers have opened the SEASON at home. Fans will be juiced for this one. Last years was extra special with the lockout ending and all too that was fantastic even though they lost in OT thanks to weekes.

It really depends which limited view seat you get, I once had the misfortune of getting limited view seats for a Rangers vs Senators game, I could see from one end of the ice all the waw to the other blueline.

I'm not ever going for limited view tickets again, ever.

Well said, the one most memorable to me that I did attend was the 5-4 OT win over the Sabres with Leetch scoring the GW, 2001.

Me too, I attended that game with a friend from Israel, he was skeptic about hockey, but couldn't stop cheering once he was there.

I sat in the limited view seats once last year..it sucked, a big bar was in my way (the safety bar so nobody falls over from the 400s)

Just because I don't want to start a new thread and be annoying...

I noticed on the MSG website about cameras, but I wanted to know how strictly is it enforced? I'm going to be doing the tourist thing all day, and then going to a game that night. Of course, I wanted to take pics of the city throughout the day.

I'm not staying in the city, but 1.5 hours away, and planning on taking the train. Am I going to have to scrap the camera that day all together?

Thanks all.

I have never seen anyone NOT allowed to bring in a camera. It shouldnt be a problem.

It's a Canon Rebel XT (digital), with a 18-55mm lens.

The obstruction you might have is people walking in the aisles during play, that could be the problem there...
