Madison Square Garden.

The old MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

The old MADISON SQUARE GARDEN occupied the block bounded by Fourth and Madison avenues and Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh streets. Its dimensions are 465 X 200 feet, and it was the largest amusement building in America. The tower springs from the Twenty-sixth street front, rising 249 feet with unbroken lines, and then by a succession of belfry stages of diminishing size tapering to the pinnacle upon which rests the shining figure of Diana with flying draperies and crescent bow, 356 feet above the sidewalk.
