Knicks Practice Facility Is The Complete Opposite Of MSG | Photos

Madison Square Garden Training Center Exterior PhotoThe New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty play their respective home games at Madison Square Garden (MSG), located at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and 33rd Street, immediately on top of Penn Station. The arena’s Midtown Manhattan location and unique positioning above a train station that serves roughly 600,000 passengers per day makes it one of the most recognized and often viewed venues of any kind in the world.

While the above teams' home arena is as recognizable as it gets, the NBA, NHL and WNBA franchises’ practice venue stands as one of the most nondescript buildings and settings one may ever see.

27 miles north of MSG (just east of the Saw Mill River Parkway) stands the Madison Square Garden Training Center, located in the village of Tarrytown, which is part of the town of Greenburgh. The MSG owned teams moved into the joint practice facility in 2002. Prior to coming together in Tarrytown, the Knicks worked out at Purchase College (9 miles east of the current site), with the Rangers skating at the Rye PlayLand Ice Casino (15 miles east of the current site).

Prior to becoming a part of the MSG training center, the Liberty never really had a true practice site of their own.

The 105,000-square-foot building, set on 16 acres of tree lined real estate, displays zero signage or distinguishing exterior features. By design, the address is intended to blend in with its surroundings, in an effort to keep the existence of the three pro teams both private and void of fanfare.

The below photo displays a wide shot of the property, with the Knicks practice facility basketball courts visible on the left, along with the Rangers practice facility hockey rink, which is positioned on the right.
