Madison Square Garden Opens
In 1991, Garden owners spent $200 million to renovate facilities and add 89 suites in place of hundreds of upper-tier seats. The project was designed by Ellerbe Becket.
Madison Square Garden's $1 billion second renovation took place mainly over three offseasons. It was set to begin after the 2009 - 2010 hockey/basketball seasons, but was delayed until after the 2010 - 2011 seasons. Renovation was done in phases with the majority of the work done in the summer months to minimize disruptions to the NHL and NBA seasons. While the Rangers and Knicks were not displaced, the Liberty played their home games through the 2013 season at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey during the renovation.
