GARDEN RENOVATIONS WILL DISPLACE LIBERTY

GARDEN RENOVATIONS WILL DISPLACE LIBERTY

“A dramatic transformation of Madison Square Garden that will take place in phases” has been planned.  For three consecutive summers (which will begin at the conclusion of  the Knicks/Rangers 2010-2011 season ), MSG will shut-it-down.  What does that mean for NY Liberty fans?  WELL, remember the Radio City Summer? Again, the Liberty will have to play there games elsewhere, for three summers!!    “We are currently in discussions to relocate the Liberty during this time, and will update you when a plan is finalized.”  said Liberty President & General Manager Carol Blazejowski in a letter to Liberty fans.  While many fans were not too keen on the Radio City basketball summer, umm, let’s keep it real.  Most fans down right didn’t like it!  We’ll see what the Garden comes up with.  The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey is a possibility.  With it’s state of the art complex, it also will be the home of the New Jersey Nets until their move to Brooklyn.

The Play-by-Play restaurant. a favorite pregame spot for Liberty fans will be closed permanently!
