WATCH: Workers transform MSG in amazing time-lapse video

Knicks star forward Carmelo Anthony marvels earlier this summer at the pace crews
at Madison Square Garden are working to finish the first phase of the renovation.

July 28, 2011

A thousand construction workers have been splitting round-the-clock shifts to complete the first phase of the renovation, which includes a completely new lower bowl, new locker rooms and event-level suites for the home of the Knicks, Rangers and St. John's.

New dark, almost Yankees-blue seats have been installed throughout the lower bowl, and over the next two years will be added throughout the arena. But the seating won’t be entirely monochrome, MSG president Hank Ratner said. Roughly 1,000 lighter blue seats will be installed in the upper bowl to pay homage to the ones way up in the rafters which were once the MSG equivalent of the Yankee Stadium bleachers.

Much of the work will be completed over the next two summers, including the sky bridges that will each hold 500 seats.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
