Knicks vs. Magic Canceled Because of Asbestos Scare in Madison Square Garden
The roof is caving in on the Knicks season already?
Wasn’t there a bed bug outbreak in NYC this summer as well?
I stayed at a W close to Times Square earlier in the year and the mirror wasn’t attached to the wall— that is so uncivilized.
Here are the details:
A Knicks statement issued this afternoon said, “Following last night’s Rangers game, during overnight maintenance of Madison Square Garden, which included cleaning asbestos-related materials in the attic above the ceiling, some debris fell into the Arena.”
It added, “Out of an abundance of caution, and after consulting the NBA, we are postponing tonight’s Knicks v. Magic game. We will be working with the city and independent experts, ATC Associates and GCI Environmental Advisory, to evaluate and determine the most appropriate course of action. As the safety of our customers and employees are our top priority, we will not reopen the Garden until we are absolutely assured the Arena is safe.”
Better to be safe than sorry, we don’t want any fans or players affected.
I like the way they subliminally tried to blame the Rangers, basically saying they were the last ones there, so it must be their fault.
Nice way to pass off responsibility.
