MSG Moving

On May 29th, at Gothamist, they looked at some renderings that architects developed for a New Madison Square Garden.

One proposal saw MSG on the west side of Manhattan, similar to where it has been thought to be moved, and the other saw the arena moved just outside of the City.

In response, MSG released a statement and said "It?s curious to see that there are so many ideas on how to tear down a privately owned building that is a thriving New York icon, supports thousands of jobs and is currently completing a $1 billion transformation. These pie-in-the-sky drawings completely ignore the fact that no viable plans or funding to rebuild Penn Station and relocate MSG actually exist."

According to the Wall Street Journal, City Council speaker Christine Quinn is favoring legislation that would create a new Penn Station and calling for a ten-year limit on Madison Square Garden operating where it currently resides.

Quinn is planning a commission that will look into a new residence for the building.

MSG has applied to have an indefinite renewal of their permit, while the City planning commission struck a compromise that called for a 15-year limit and allow MSG to renew indefinitely if they can come to terms with the LIRR, NJ Transit and Amtrak on adding more stairs, elevators and escalators to Penn Station.
