“THE GARDEN” On so many nights across it’s 125 year history, the Garden has been THE place to be. Today, Madison Square Garden extends its greatness onto busy Seventh Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets in Manhattan. The first Garden opened on Fifth Avenue in 1879 and has since changed locations and revolutionized into the 19,763-seat arena at its current location. The Garden is no stranger to college basketball, hosting the very first major postseason tournament, the National Invitational Tournament, in 1938. Well known across the globe, the Garden is more than an arena. Nearly five million fans pass through the Garden’s turnstiles every year, taking in such familiar staples as the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty, concerts, world championship boxing, and of course, college basketball.

“It’s known simply as ‘The Garden,’ a perfect appellation for a place where legends grow. To millions, those two words mean just one thing: Madison Square Garden, billed in typical New York hype as THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS ARENA.” “It doesn’t matter if it’s Michael Jordan, or Muhammad Ali, or Sinatra, or the Pope... They know the stage is brighter here than anyplace else!” “Whether sitting in the locker room or waiting in the wings, athletes and artists view the Garden as the pinnacle: the best venue in the biggest city before the brightest audiences.” “The Garden is more than a building. The history is so rich, and people want to be a part of that history.”

- From “Looking Back at 125 Years of Madison Square Garden” By AP Writer Larry McShane
