Video: Watch MSG’s $1 billion renovation

Oct 24, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

It took $1 billion and required the New York Rangers to start two of their last three seasons with lengthy road trips, but Madison Square Garden’s three-phase renovation is finally over.

The Rangers won’t play their first home game of 2013-14 until Monday when they host Montreal.

And, of course, how long they get to call the current location home — beyond the year 2023? — remains unclear.

    I have a similar video showing how my paycheck disappears, but it’s not as long as thing one, and only has one phase.

    And yet in 10 years this place will be torn down most likely

      Doubtful.

      This isn’t the first time plans have come up to move the Garden and build a new Penn Station. In fact the last time was only a few years ago, when the recession (among other things) scuttled a project to do just that. The collapse of that plan is actually what lead to the current renovation.

      Lots of things will change in 10 years. Who knows where the economy will be, and there are several elections for mayor and governor that the current proposal would have to survive. Could it? Sure, but if history is any indication it probably won’t.

    No more green and red seats then? Or was it blue seats instead of red?

    Man, it would be a real shame if all this brand new renovation gets demolished after all this work and $1 freakin’ BILLION spent…
