Vintage Photographs Show All Four Original Madison Square Gardens

The current sports and concert arena Madison Square Garden was not the first of its name here in New York City, with 4 previous buildings each calling themselves Madison Square Garden.

Check out this Bowery Boys episode for a full history on the different Madison Square Gardens.
