Jennifer Gould Keil at the New York Post reports that the MSG sky bridges are complete and ready for use.
Keil adds that the two glass-walled 430-seating areas (north bridge has 355 seats and the south bridge 75, plus space for media) attached to the roof are going for $110 to $210 and hold a total of 900 people.
The bridge seats are 94 feet away from the arena floor, which is the same distance as existing front-row seats.
...listen, I have criticized the bridges as a gimmick for the Dolans to make more money. And don't get me started on them obstructing the view of the scoreboard and arena for those not fortunate enough to sit with the suits ice level. But I do have to admit, I'm sure sitting up there is a pretty awesome and unique experience. If anyone wants to buy me tickets, definitely send me an e-mail. lol
Here are some pics provided by the Post...

...now this is an improvement I can get behind. The ice at MSG has been notoriously awful, so more than any other part of the renovation, if true, this will make the fan experience so much better by improving the quality of play.
Your better off staying home ordering NHL package get every game in the league for the same price as one ticket in the garden.
So now the majority of the fans in the 200's will have views of the scoreboard blocked? I can't even imagine how bad the sound will be for a concert with the addition of this new massive overhang. Another great move by Jimmy D!
So now I pay $112 per game for my two seats in the 200 level so I can watch on a screen what I PAID TO SEE while also getting the added bonus of looking at the ASSES on the bridge who would rather be seen than watch the game on the ice. After 15 years of ever increasing ticket prices, with no real payoff, like a STANLEY CUP, I think next year I'll sit at home and put my money in my pocket instead of letting Dolan continue to screw me over.
I'd rather stare at the Brooklyn Bridge and listen to the game on my Walkman. More money wasted by Dolan.
can someone explain how front row seats are 94 ft away from the ice which is the same distance as the sky bridges? Aren't the front row seats separated by the boards???????????????? It's Monday so I'm not firing on all cylinders!
See as they are hanging from the ceilings, should be really interesting to see if they move/shake/rock with the building when (hopefully, some day) it gets crazy inside.
$110? I only make it there like maybe 2x/year and each time I've paid anywhere from $90 to $120 for nosebleeds. I'll take those bridge seats at $110. But I sure as hell am not spending that money now w/ the way this team is playing. I'd rather drive to Hartford!
How many more losses before those become "affordable"?? What a joke, can't even see the scoreboard anymore from the 200s. Sad.
It really would have been cheaper for the Dolans to just hang a banner telling everyone in the 200's to go f*ck themselves.
They actually look completely different than I expected - will be very curious to see them when the Rangers come home next week.
@calithirteen I think it means that they're the same distance as the front row seats in the 200's.
@calithirteen 430 seats, but 900 fans. for $110 I think you'll be standing for 3 hours...
@jslnyr1102 somehow im skeptical...is AV screwing up the goaltending already?
@johnnyb3910 @calithirteen I think that's including standing room on the bridge w/ the seats being sold. Who knows. I still don't understand how the bridge seats are 94 ft away from the ice which is somehow the same distance as from the front row? 94ft? That's some pretty thick boards they have around the ice!
