    Definitely not. Many will be working from home permanently, and those that keep getting mugged by the same guy who doesn't get prosecuted will wish they did

    Building is about the future, not the past. New York will recover.

    There have a more detailed look on the developer’s website that includes a practice court (I imagine practice rink as well for the Rangers). That alone should make a plan that MSG officials should ponder. The benefit for both Knicks/Rangers players not having to travel from Westchester to Manhattan for practices and games will be great. Also, can be used by community for tournaments and events. MSG will eventually have to be replaced, so any plan that has it close NY Penn Station is solid in my book.

    It will but it’s going to be a while and require a lot of work. And understanding. The latter is what I fear not many truly understand.

    I agree that building is about the future, but I think it would be smart to put a hold on giant new office buildings until we figure out how many companies are going to move towards a more flexible working model.

    As for the new stadium, as long as Dolan is paying for it himself and not leaning on the taxpayers, I'm all for it.

    Yeah right, he's going to be expecting a couple billion to give up the real estate between 7th and 8th

    Does he own the land under MSG? Don't think so. Does he own the air rights above it? Don't know--but doubt it.

    Dolan should have taken the deal to put MSG behind the Moynihan Train Hall.

    This project is not happening tomorrow--it will 3-5 years just getting it going (don't know if there are any financial backs at this point). The project is just a dream right now.

    Amtrak I believe owns everything below ground. Ground and up is all owned by MSG to my knowledge.

    I just watched 21 Bridges and want to know on a scale of 1-10 how good was Sienna Miller’s accent?

    Yup. Going to look at ticket prices. Be interesting to see if they are sky high or made more affordable.

    The market will decide, they already have a dynamic pricing mechanism on ticketmaster

    My guess is same market prices as 2019 pre-pandemic. At 100% I would expect lower prices

    Correct.

    The site was originally owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR). The jet plane killed long distance travel. The interstates killed short distance travel. The PRR was hemorrhaging cash after the second world war. They were looking to make more money out of their two city blocks.

    They sold, what I believe was a 10-year option to develop air rights in 1952. Later in the 50's the option was executed, just around the time that MSG was looking for a new home. The air rights were sold to the Garden. It's essentially private property.

    If Government wants to take it via eminent domain, they need to pay the owners of the Garden fair market value, and provide them a similar site, prepared and ready for construction of a new Garden. The quoted article for moving the Garden one avenue east to land currently occupied by the Pennsyvania Hotel (whose phone number still is PEnnsylvania 6-5000), the old Gimbels and EJ Korvettes is a pipe dream. There are better things to spend taxpayer money on, such as expanding the number of tracks in Penn Station, and adding tunnels under the Hudson.

    I did walk through the new Farley / Moynahan train shed a few weeks ago. It looks nice, but it's many blocks from a majority of the subway lines serving Penn, so I wonder how much congestion it will actually relieve.

    The new entrance to Penn's LIRR concourse, from 33rd and 7th, is open. All the shops on the LIRR concourse are shuttered except for the Sushi place and Starbucks. There is no place to grab anything to go on the LIRR level. No Shake Shack. No LeBon Cafe. No Rose's (both of them). No Moe's. No Mr. Smoothie. I forgot the name of the bakery cafe between the Rose's... Looks like everything downstairs s is getting a makeover. I had to get my train beer at the Duane Reade on street level. (I didn't go visit the Amtrak level.)

    Are you referring to the Farley building on 8th? If so, reports were Dolan was willing to do something there and vacate current MSG. However, politicians dragged their feet, dragged their feet, and then dragged their feet some more. Dolan finally said, "screw it, I am just renovating." Then Christine Quinn brought up "returning Penn Station to it's former glory."

    Who is buying the current arena from him or is he just supposed to donate it back to the city and pay for a new arena?

    Hey guys, looking for info on rec leagues around the city. I used to play in one before moving here, but that was 6 years ago, so definitely looking for something more casual. I am in Williamsburg, but open to hearing about any options around the city. Any info you guys can give is greatly appreciated!

    I'm going to try and come up with a list of free or low-cost things to do this summer.

    Not just because I'm poor but because I believe the best way to enjoy a city is naturally.

    Living at the Cloisters is the best. Walking around here is one of my favorite city experiences and I've been frequenting or living in Manhattan since I was like 12.
