MSG Renovations A Year Behind Schedule

Tom Topousis at the New York Post reports that renovations to Madison Square Garden are about a year behind a schedule set up last year with the lower half of the arena bowl being rebuilt in time for the 2011-12 seasons and the upper half to be done the following year, 2012-13..

Hank Ratner, vice chairman of Madison Square Garden, insists that the delay is the result of taking extra time in the planning phase...

"One thing we don't want to do is have to go back and change it midway through," he said.

Ratner adds that Garden officials had looked at the problems the Yankees faced in selling expensive luxury suites during the recession.

Renderings of the new Garden are also provided.
