Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden designed by Stanford White of McKim, Mead & White c. 1890 at Madison Avenue and East 26th Street in New York City. White kept an apartment in the Garden and the rooftop restaurant was the site of his murder by Harry K. Thaw in 1906. Click HERE for the NYTimes article on the shooting. The building was closed in 1925 and demolished to make way in 1926 for Cass Gilbert's New York Life Building. Click HERE and HERE for more on the second Madison Square Garden.
