March Madness & More at Madison Square Garden
March is a busy month for Madison Square Garden. With March Madness, the 70th anniversary year of the New York Knicks, and the New York Rangers vying for a playoff position, there are plenty of sporting events at Madison Square in March 2017.

We’re a block away from The Garden, which makes it all the more convenient to stay with us after the game. Here’s what’s happening in March 2017, so you can plan your stay:
