Madison Square Garden has completed two parts of its extensive remodeling project. The second phase of the “Transformation” is being turned into a week-long special on MSG Network.
To complete the second phase of the Transformation, this past summer, there were more than 1,000 construction workers at The Garden on a daily basis, around the clock until the Knicks’ opening night game against the Miami Heat. MSG Network was there every step of the way to give viewers a backstage pass.
The series, voiced by actor Billy Crudup, also shines a light on the people that made The Garden reborn.
There were the famous Garden moments gone by, reenacted one more time. For example, former Knick Larry Johnson showed workers where his famous 4-point play was made in the 1999 Eastern Conference Finals. Stephane Matteau was on hand to discuss one of the greatest moments in Rangers’ history, his winning goal lifting the Blueshirts to the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals.
