Yes... Last time I tried, I was told it's still a hard hat area.

THIS EXACTLY IS WHAT I DID. This should be beginning and end of discussion. Its not about ice vision, its about tunnel vision and people in front of you. Plus tickets up there are going to be expensive from what I see, also doesnt look like any concessions up there so you have to walk onto the west balcony to get stuff.

I must admit that the place looks cool. and the scoreboard looks amazing. Now, the only time I see the Rangers is when they play in CA or otherwise on TV. Of course, it sucks that people are being priced out. It is a lot cheaper to go to a game in Anaheim.

The viewing angle of the ice from those seats is actually really good, but you would need to know what the score is and how much time is remaining.

What's on those blue carts?

probably an optical illusion, but that scoreboard looks really off-centered

Look at the red and blue line markings on the boards to re-center your eyes.

Wow. That's pretty outrageous for seats that far from the action.

I'm wondering who will be the first to "moon" the fans in the upper 200s from the bridge?

yeah, but the seats are new and fairly limited, so they are being marketed as a premium product. i'd definitely like to catch a game from there...but $140 is a bit steep. then again, there aren't many deals at MSG these days.

Guess they decided to spend that money on Brad Richards instead.

Nev, that had to have been a concept picture, no? The finished product looks just like what the MSG Transformation website advertises here.

Think it may light up the colors of what team is playing/what event is being hosted that night. Just my guess though.

That's what I was thinking as well. I hope they don't keep that rainbow cycle on, that would just make it weird lol.

On this page -
http://msgtransformation.com/Construction.aspx

They refer to the "Chase Square Ceiling Experience"...maybe the neon lights dance?

"Where is everyone, the puck is about to drop?"

"They're experiencing the ceiling in Chase Square."
