Is it too much to ask people to reserve their judgment until after they have some first-hand experience?
It's the internet!!!1!
Really, though, I think these photos are optical illusions. The first one doesn't look nearly as bad as the second one because of the concave shape of the ceiling, so the closer you get to the goal ends of the rink, the ****tier it looks.
Uh yes it does. People commute to work is more vital to economy. Current one is barely functional and wont be in the future.
And, a nicer concourse and prettier architecture is going to cause more people to commute through Penn Station? Yeah, if they go ahead with it, I think I will look to transfer to a school in Manhattan so I can walk through Penn Station everyday.
I thought there was supposed to be LED ribbon boards on the bridges???
Sorta glad it wasn't added on the bridges seeing as how it wouldn't have wrapped all the way around due to the east end stacked suites/balcony. I'd prefer, assuming they still do add one, that the ribbon board wraps around the top of the mid-level suites along the facing of the upper bowl.
There have been very few updates since this came out, but I honestly would not be married to anything in this rendering...
I really hope they keep the 4 rows of lights. I love how all of the banners and retired jerseys are hung in one of the rows.
The concentric circles look really nice working with the addition of a circular scoreboard top.
Accentuates the ceiling design, softens the arena perspective and delivers a defined focal point that was lacking in the old Garden.
edit: looks like it could be the aisle between 221 and 222, row 13. much worse than anyone imagined
The project is NOT DONE.
My head is going to explode if i read more complaining about views in here. If you don't like the view from your seat, sit somewhere else. The structure of a building from the 1960s precludes every seat in the house from being a good one. That's just all there is to it.
