That's not true, they don't have views from each seat. They have a handful of "representative" views from each section. What you see is the closest row available to your assigned location

Put a horn on it that will break windows across the street, and then they're done.

As long as it's the same horn and same goal song, I'll be happy. We have the best goal horn in the NHL

Wait, so something might actually affect your familiar Garden experience? Well, just as you implied earlier in this thread that people will simply have to deal with the new layout... so too, will you have to deal with this.

Yeah, but I am talking about actually seeing the action on the ice, not the ambiance of the lobby or the exterior of the building.

Yup, didnt realize I could scroll the pic. Definitely too many seats to the left to be mine and too many rows behind. Emailed her, last night when I noticed. No response yet.

Maybe it's just me but wouldn't it be better if they lowered the scoreboard a little?

Could be an issue with NBA games, but they care enough maybe they can do that for the Rangers

BTW, the garden opens in just 9 days

How would it be an issue with NBA games? Figured it would be a bigger problem with Ranger games since dumped in pucks could hit the board if it's too low. Just seemed the old board was lower though this one is a lot bigger so that could be why.

Edit - I guess the ball could hit the board too in rare circumstances.

Edit 2 - Picture of the old board.



Lot of space between the ceiling and the board while the new board is basically up against the ceiling. Again, could be that it isn't possible since the new board is a lot bigger and stretches down to where the old one was anyway.

Does the NBA and/or NHL mandate what the clearance has to be between the playing surface and the bottom of the scoreboard?

I believe that one of the reasons why its so close to the top is to hide those hideous purple cable joints that they did not refinish black to match the rest of the interior/seats.

That thing is gorgeous.

Or a "thing of beauty" Joe would say.

Id prefer if the "Madison Square Garden" ring was not electronic. Aluminum letters would have looked more classy.
