Madison Square Garden

Madison Square Garden

Madison Square Garden, 1924

Leon Dolice

When it was designed by Sanford White, the Second Madison Square Garden was the second tallest building in New York City and had the largest auditorium (seating 8,000) in the United States. It houses a theater, concert hall, apartments, a roof garden, and the city's largest restaurant. It played host to all sorts of entertainment events, and was particularly successful because of the popularity of the sport of boxing in that day. In 1925 it was razed to make way for the headquarters of the New York Life Insurance Company.
