Madness Square Garden (Madison Square Garden nickname)

Madison Square Garden (an indoor sports arena in Midtown Manhattan, the home of basketball’s New York Knicks and hockey’s New York Rangers) is infrequently nicknamed “Madness Square Garden.”

“More upsets at Madness Square Garden http://tinyurl.com/bbhc6p” was posted on Twitter by Buzztap on March 10, 2009. “Life at Madness Square Garden” was posted on Twitter by New York (NY) Daily News sportswriter Frank Isola on January 19, 2012. “My daughter still calls it ‘Madness Square Garden’ and honestly should be in charge of naming all places where people gather” was posted on Twitter by Kim Bongiorno on July 1, 2018.

Other Madison Square Garden nicknames include “Mecca" and “World’s Most Famous Arena.”


Wikipedia: Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden, colloquially known as The Garden or in initials as MSG, is a multi-purpose indoor arena in New York City. Located in Midtown Manhattan between 7th and 8th Avenues from 31st to 33rd Streets, it is situated atop Pennsylvania Station. It is the fourth venue to bear the name “Madison Square Garden”; the first two (1879 and 1890) were located on Madison Square, on East 26th Street and Madison Avenue, with the third Madison Square Garden (1925) further uptown at Eighth Avenue and 50th Street.

The Garden is used for professional ice hockey and basketball, as well as boxing, concerts, ice shows, circuses, professional wrestling and other forms of sports and entertainment. It is close to other midtown Manhattan landmarks, including the Empire State Building, Koreatown, and Macy’s at Herald Square. It is home to the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL), the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and was home to the New York Liberty (WNBA) from 1997 to 2017.

My daughter still calls it “Madness Square Garden” and honestly should be in charge of naming all places where people gather.
