BUILDING BLOCKS: In Baltimore, Peter Schmuck writes Thursday's Knicks-Wizards preseason game at Baltimore Arena "highlighted the need for a modern arena that would draw more big events to the city," despite the fact that there is "little prospect of [an] NBA or NHL team landing in the area in the foreseeable future." The old arena "still hosts some attractive events, but a full-size, state-of-the-art facility would make Baltimore a much more popular destination for big-time rock acts, major sporting events and conventions." It also would "enhance the region’s prospects for a successful bid" to host the '24 Summer Games (Baltimore SUN, 10/18).
GARDEN PARTY: MSG on Thursday unveiled designs for the arena's new center-hung multimedia display entitled "GardenVision." The display will serve as the centerpiece of MSG's new LED video display system, which debuts Oct. 25 as part of the third and final phase of the arena's $1B renovation. The display will consist of 24 individual HD, LED designs, which are curved to mirror the circular design of the arena (MSG).
