Anyone who went to pre-reno MSG can tell you how grotty and claustrophobic the concourses used to be. No more. Beynon and his team have put the accent on pale colours, higher ceilings and open spaces rather than putting concessions behind counters and walls. The contrast between the lower levels, which were done last year, and the upper ones, which are scheduled for this year, is striking. The arena company has also announced it will create an interactive exhibit with collectibles, plaques, and other doo-dads, to celebrate the history of the building. It will be located on one of the lower concourses.
