    MSG IV was built after the Pennsylvania Railroad tore down the above-ground portions of Pennsylvania Station. The new structure was one of the first of its kind to be built above the platforms of an active railroad station.

    The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission was created in 1965, following the public outcry after the destruction of Pennsylvania Station, an outstanding example of Beaux-Arts architecture, to make way for the construction of the current Madison Square Garden.

    Little known to non New Yorkers and younger generations, MSG is the reason that perhaps the most visually stunning train station of all time was demolished. In its wake an arena that has led to perhaps one of the worst neighborhoods within the magnificence of midtown.  Even Hells Kitchen is becoming stunning.

    A year after being named the next figurehead of the Catholic church at the 1978 Papal conclave, Pope John Paul II scheduled a visit to New York to host a youth rally.

    What the newly-ordained pope didn’t expect from the audience at Madison Square Garden was the reception he’d receive, as kids of all ages greeted the arrival of the biggest religious “celebrity” of their time with fevered intensity.

    The cheers were so deafening that Pope John Paul II couldn’t even begin his program proper until the crowd simmered down several minutes later. Beatlemania this wasn’t, but the celebrated visit by his holy eminence certainly felt like it was.

    The best game ever played at MSG.

    Jim Boeheim’s Syracuse Orange squared off against Jim Calhoun’s Connecticut Huskies in the quarterfinal stage of the Big East Tournament, which ended up becoming the longest game in conference history. Syracuse needed six overtimes (!) to beat UConn, 127-117, with the game lasting past 1:00 AM Eastern Time.

    Although the Orange didn’t win the Big East title nor the national championship that season, this marathon of a contest remains as a truly impressive showcase in college basketball lore.

    MSG is served by 14 subway lines and can be reached by all other lines (including the three shuttle lines) generally with a single transfer. MSG is easily accessible from the Long Island Rail Road as it sits atop Penn Station. For Metro-North riders, it's just two subway stops away from Grand Central.
