doesn't look any better or worse to me than what we were expecting. It will be all about the actual view when you're sitting in the place

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.

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.

Yes, Because we know it will suck for many of us.

Tampa/Denver for size; Columbus for quality. Again, we just do not have the vertical space for anything bigger than what we are getting.

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.

The scaffolding is down now....I cant tell yet if that scoreboard matches the one from the rendering, but I guess its not completed, with the circular parts that will be on the top and bottom.

The newest interior photos of the scoreboard seem to show that it is not a true wraparound set up. Slices were cut at the corners to separate the TV screen portion from what will probably be ad space.

Aren't most of them made like that? Not a big deal. I'm just curious will there be another ring board at the bottom.

Judging by this computer rendering, the scoreboard cutouts aren't surprising. Also if you believe the picture to be accurate, there are 4 rings.

It's possible that they may have changed something though. For instance the pic shows the bridges having a ribbon board. Which now looks like it's been scrapped.

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.

Latest pic - I see the outline of the hockey rink is starting to be put in place



Did they actually restore the ceiling in any way? I thought that was part of the plan.

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.
