I loved the seats I had, and I loved the fact that the arena was right square in the middle of Midtown where you could walk a few blocks to Times Square and are just a hop and a skip from all of the most happening spots in Manhattan. There aren't many if any arenas in the country with a central downtown location, as well as history and significance like the Garden. My future trip to NYC will include a stop over at MSG, and hopefully a Knick game.
Are you sure you want to see a Knicks game THIS year? They're pretty bad...

MSG is definitely iconic as far as Arenas go. The electric atmosphere and history cannot be matched by many venues.

What about the old Boston Garden?

As far as stadiums go, I'd say the old Soldier Field, Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, or Wrigley Field are very iconic. The Astrodome was iconic in its heyday as well, given that it was the first domed stadium. I know a lot of people do not like domed stadiums, but from a historical aspect, that was a milestone.

The new BOK center is absolutely stunning. I'm surprised architecture like that wasn't in a larger city. Tulsa really has a great gem there.

We should also recognize the Sprint Center, another shiny new arena that just opened in 2007 in Kansas City...
