Maybe it's something about being > 6' and 225 lbs.

Maybe I don't get checked because I don't have a bag with me and I'm about the same height and weight as a 15 year old.

They started wanding everyone after the Boston bombings.

Go to any game after that?

Nope. They were all before that.

It's about damn time they started wanding people, though. They should have done that way before the bombing.

It looks like they are filling in a few blanks on the board... smoothing the edges, etc. It's possible some little squares were damaged in transit. Nonetheless, looking good.

nice - so the rink boards are in. It seems like that scoreboard has been taken up and down quite a few times, so they must have some sort of lever. So I'm thinking, next time the Flyers are in town, you lure them all to center ice with raw pieces of meat or shiny trinkets or something, then BLAM you hit the switch!! muahahaha

It's actually raised and lowered really, really slowly using a complicated hoist system. Remember what happened in Buffalo a number of years ago? That's what happens when procedures aren't followed.

The ceiling looks painted white, or is that the lighting?

I'd assume that's the lighting. The color seems a little bit faded.

I still have an irrational fear of something like that happening during a game

I'm an engineer, so I have a good appreciation for how solidly the structure is held together (assuming procedures are followed correctly, as you said)...but man, does logic go out the window when you worry about something like that.

So...it's safe to say that was a total loss.

Could be week, could be three weeks. It's a fast process once they start doing it. They'll make it under 3 days no problem.

those pictures by gordongecko are the best bridge photos we've seen yet. I am really curious how this plays out - some rows are going to be completely unaffected - some not so much.

I am in row 10. It looks like the bridges are just about directly over my head (the back edge of the bridge). I may get the best of both worlds : blocked scoreboard view and too far forward to see the monitors on the back of the bridge. I can't wait to see photos from the seats.

Who the hell thought this was a good idea?

I mean, when I go to the Garden, I want to watch the game, not watch it on a monitor

At least that's what it looks like, I suppose I could be wrong having not followed these renovations too closely.

The bridges are doing the obstructing but what are they obstructing the patron from? Seeing the game, or seeing the scoreboard. The seats appear sloped enough that the patrons view of the ice will be unaffected by the presence of the bridges. If the patrons view of the scoreboard is obstructed then omgwhocares.gif

If you don't like the seats then don't sit there. We all knew this was coming several years ago...so I made sure to relocate my seats so that they wouldn't be impacted. Bottom line is you'll see the ice just fine...the scoreboard may or may not be a problem. For me I wanted no part of any tunnel vision effect...but for others that's not an issue.

Anyone else trying to get a tour of the place before it opens on 10/25 for the Knicks/Bobcats game?
