    New York Sports Scene

    "Why do they call it Madison Square Garden? After all, it's round!"

    "The Garden" or MSG, takes its name from its original home near Madison SQUARE Park on 23rd Street. The Garden opened there in 1879, replacing an old delapidated railroad depot.

    In 1925, the Garden moved uptown to 50th Street and Eighth Avenue, before settling into its current location in 1968 at 33rd Street & 7th Avenue...rising above yet another railroad depot, Penn Station.

    So in future if anyone gets into the round-square debate about Madision
    Square Garden, now you'll know why MSG is, well, round....
