Behold: TD Garden

Behold, TD Garden, the home of the Boston Bruins since 1995. The arena, located on top of the commuter rail and transportation hub of North Station, was built just north of the plot of land where Boston Garden once stood and has a smaller footprint when compared to most modern multipurpose arenas. At 755,000 square feet, the property is closer in size to Honda Center (650,000 square feet) than STAPLES Center (950,000 square feet). The hockey capacity of 17,565 is on the smaller end of NHL arenas.

I’m preparing for my pre-game and first intermission broadcasting responsibilities, so instead of a multi-chapter review of the history of the building, here are photos from inside the intimate arena.
