Madison Square Garden, often called simply "The Garden", is a multi-purpose indoor arena in Manhattan located 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 further uptown at Eighth Avenue and 50th Street.

The Garden is used for professional basketball and ice hockey, as well as boxing, concerts, ice shows, circuses, professional wrestling and other forms of sports and entertainment. It is close to other midtown landmarks, including the Empire State Building, Koreatown, and Macy's at Herald Square.
