One of the best and historic sports, music and entertainment venues is located right here in New York City – Madison Square Garden. Week after week the venue gives way to a wide range of events including basketball, soccer, concerts and even rodeos! The other great thing about Madison Square Garden, or ‘MSG’ as it’s known to most, is that it is located right above Penn Station, making transportation a breeze. The venue has a way of transporting you out of the big city but still lets you feel like you are part of something big, real big. This upcoming summer and fall, there could be a seat waiting for you in the 20,000 seat venue:
