Well the old stadiums are going to be torn down regardless, so you'll just have to get over it.

I know, but the MSG is like the Sydney Opera House for NY.

I'm pretty sure it's been stated earlier in this thread that the proposal is to build a new sports arena at the post office currently across the street from MSG.

are you aware that the CURRENT MSG is actually the 3rd such building??




the original stood at Madison Square (where NY Life tower now stands)



the second MSG stood at 50th st and 8th ave ...where Worldwide Plaza now stands....



and the current MSG stands where the beautiful Pennsylvania Station once stood....





so as you can see MSG can be built just about anywhere in NYC, and the current building is no landmark.....

Since James A. Farley post office is a National Landmark,I don't think they will demolish it.I'm supposing MSG will be integrated to the current structure of the post office.

Under the current plans, this is what will happen to the Farley building:

Quote:
Since then, the Spitzer and the Bloomberg administrations have been working with the developers. The latest plan calls for a new, 20,000-seat arena to be built in the western two-thirds of the Farley building. The glass-covered arena would rise as much as 35 feet above the roof of the post office, with a 10-foot setback. Signs advertising events at the Garden would be mounted on kiosks, rather than plastered on the building as the Garden owners originally suggested.

MSG is known throughout the world for the concerts and sports events, but mostly just for the name. I don't think a lot of people that know about it actually know what it looks like though.

On the other hand, the Sydney Opera House is known for its architecture. It's a symbol, a landmark, and it's instantly recognizable. And a lot more people know about it than about MSG.

My point is that there is no way you can compare the two of them.



Anyway, I have seen MSG myself (the outside) and it's quite ugly.

The towers will be more of a memorable landmark than Madison Square Garden, even though I'm sure many residents of NYC think otherwise.

Few New Yorkers care about the current MSG. It's nothing special.
