A few days ago, MSGtransformation.com posted a collection of pictures chronicling the continuing changes to Madison Square Garden during the on-going renovations. The collection included shots of the lower bowl, suites, concourses, entryways and the lobby.
It’s good to see that everything seems to be running smoothly and to plan, and although I’m not a big fan of the Rangers spending so much time on the road at the start of the season due to the renovations, as a Brit who will be in Stockholm for both games in October… I don’t exactly hate it either!
Join me after the jump for the rest of today’s Ranger reads…
