HOME & GARDEN: In N.Y., Michael Kimmelman notes the owners of MSG are looking to N.Y. officials to "renew -- in perpetuity -- the special permit that allows them to operate an arena atop Penn Station." It is a request the City Council "should deny." The Council could "grant a 10-year permit, enough time so that the Garden and the various parties responsible for the station can come up with an appropriately aggressive plan to improve the site, a plan that should include discussions about a possible future home, elsewhere, for the arena" (N.Y. TIMES, 2/14).
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: In Denver, Benjamin Hochman notes the Nuggets last night played the team's first game at Barclays Center and writes under the header, "You Must See Brooklyn's Barclays Center To Believe It." Hochman: "The arena is pretty cool, I must say." There is a "good vibe in here and a cool vibe around here." The crowd is "as eclectic as the borough" (DENVER POST, 2/14).
