New York Car Rentals and Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden is a multi-use arena in New York that is used for many different events. It is located over Penn Stations, so it is very easy to find with your New York car rental. It is home to the Knicks basketball team and the Rangers hockey team. There are also concerts and many other events that take place here.
The Garden is a great place to visit when you are in Manhattan with a New York car rental. There is something for everyone. Whether you like basketball, hockey, women's basketball, or music - you are sure to find something here. Special events such as the Ringling Brothers and the Barnum and Bailey Circus perform here when they are in New York City. The NBA Draft is held here, and there is always something special going on. In 2004 it was the site of the Republican National Convention, and it had been the site of the 1976, 1980, and 1992 Democratic National Conventions. It has also hosted some of the World Wrestling Entertainment's shows such as WrestleMania, Summerslams, and a Royal Rumble. With over 320 events a year, there really is something for everyone with your New York car rental!
Music: many live concerts are taped here and released as an album afterwards. Many big artists also broadcast their concert live from here, including Britney Spears and NSYNC. There are also benefit concerts held here, including the Concert for New York City following September 11.
Boxing has a long history at the Garden. Some of the biggest fights in boxing were held here before some promoters moved to Las Vegas. There were many Joe Louis fights, the Roberto Duran-Ken Buchanan affair happened here, and the first and second Joe Frazier-Muhammad Ali fights.
The New York Police Academy holds its annual graduation here, and it has also been the New York site of annual Grammy Awards.
Madison Square Garden is located on Seventh Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets. If you are coming with your New York car rental, take any of the bridges, tunnels, or road from outside Manhattan. There is parking at 230 West 31st Street, 325 West 34th Street, and 441 9th Avenue. It might be easier to take the subway or train. This way you do not have to worry about parking your New York car rental. The train will take you right to Penn Station at Madison Square Garden. Or, take the 1, 2, or 3 (Seventh Avenue Lines), A, C or E (Eighth Avenue Subway) to 34th Street/Penn Station. There is also B, D, F, N, Q, R or Path to 34th Street/Avenue of the Americas (one block walk).
The owners of Madison Square Garden, Cablevision, has plans to add to the complex. If it is accepted, a new Garden would be built at the western end of the James Farley Post Office across the street. There would be wide concourses with stores and restaurants, luxury boxes with better sight lines, a museum, and a hall of fame. The current Garden would be torn down and replaced with an office tower.
