Madison Square Garden is also referred to simply as ‘The Garden’, and is a multi-purpose indoor NY Arena in the New York City Borough of Manhattan. Located at 8th Avenue, between 31st and 33rd Streets, it sits atop Pennsylvania Station.
The current Madison Square Garden is the hub of Madison Square Garden Center, in the office and entertainment complex formally addressed as Pennsylvania Plaza, which is commonly known as Penn Plaza for the railroad station that sits on top of the complex.
Madison Square Garden opened on February 11, 1968, and it is the longest-running, active sporting facility for major NY Sports in the New York Metropolitan area. The modern-day Madison Square Garden is the fourth incarnation of this New York Attraction in Manhattan. One Penn Plaza stands at its side, and several other operating entities related to the New York Venue also surround “The Garden.”

In 1991, Madison Square Garden owners spent $200 million to renovate the New York Sporting Venue, adding 89 suites. The process involved hundreds of upper-tier seats being removed to make way for bigger and better facilities.
