I think the bridges are going to look tacky.

because even though you'll be looking at the ice, they'll still be in your line of sight

the upper bowl is going to come together really quickly just because of the fact that they are using pre-fab concrete sections rather than pouring new concrete and letting it settle..

the earth cam is a week behind, i wouldn't be surprised if they're already 90% done with installation of concrete and getting to work on seat installation already

Yea i was thinking the same thing. Also you can really see the layout of the new 8th floor concourse, how much it has expanded..crazy. No need for me to go down to the 6th floor anymore, unless there is no store on 8th.

They added a team store during the second half of the season in the 343 area (I guess that's 203 now though don't know the sections off the top of my head) so there will be one up there for sure.

That had nothing to do with it. When Paramount took over, they wanted their company colors.

What's the main difference (other than time) between pre-fab concrete and pouring it and let it settle? Will the 2nd deck be safe with the pre-fab concrete?

It will be just as safe. It's easier to prepare the slabs off site and just drop them into place as opposed to doing all the work on site. It's a very common practice.

If they did it your way, they would have to make a mold which is complicated and takes up space which needs to be worked on. They probably created these pre-fabs months ago.

Very common indeed. I used to haul quite a bit of pre-fab concrete work. We did an Entire HESS store a few years ago. 3 sections, all pre-fabed & mated together to make one store.

I already wrote the answer to your question. The action is below but the activity above distracts. Everything in your peripheral vision should remain static.

Hey guys, can anybody tell me the policy regarding taking cameras into the hockey? From memory MSG didn't allow it?

Friend of mine who sits behind me regularly brought in her DSLR with a fairly lengthy lens. So you should be fine. All they'll do is check the contents of the camera bag as you walk in.

From experience though, you'd need to be credentialed if you want to bring in any type of standard video camera -- such as a producer cam or shoulder-mounted setup.

The CGI's from the seating chart on the Rangers website look really nice. Obviously the building is losing some of it's "character," but the 400s were a ****hole.

I think you are reading too much into it. It will be fine.

Not sure what makes you so confident as to be speaking in absolutes. It might be fine...or it might not.

Well for me, I think it will definitely be fine. It's a fact that it won't block the ice from any seat, which is ALL I care about. The people on the bridge won't distract me, just like how people walking in the aisles in the lower bowl don't distract me.

well that's your perogative. the rest of us think it will be a HUGE problem and aren't concerned with the people walking on the bridge, rather the structure itself

They seem to be making good progress. All the concrete is probably in place already.

Looks like they're starting to work on the 7th floor suites now as well. The wall below the goal 200's is starting to come down.

They should put glass in front of the 400s under the west balcony, instead of that current concrete wall. My seats are behind the net there, and if there is no concrete wall, rows 3,4,5 would not be obstructed, it would be like the west balcony. You wouldnt have to lean over to see behind the net and board play in the corners. Is there anyone to contact to reccomend this, it seems like such a logical idea, idk how nobody has thought or said it. All it is is doing what they did to west balcony just a few feet below in the 400s
