  • Requiem for the Brendan Byrne Arena (aka izod Center) (1981-2015)

    The place where Eamonn Coghlan ran 3:49.78 around a 10-lap (160m) track (which I saw) is almost ready to buy the farm.

    I suspect most of you already know; so, I'll leave you with this report:

    That article was published in January. Here's an update:

    Yup, it's apparently closed now--the last event was the circus.

      How do you think we really old guys felt when the old Madison Square Garden ( 49th and 8th) was no more ?!

        Geezer! I wonder if you can be topped.

        Are there any readers on the board who were alive at the still earlier edition of the Garden when it was located at Madison Square? That Garden closed in 1925.

          Yup. I heard about the circus in the news this past weekend. That's why I went looking for an earlier report on the arena's demise.
