Backstory and Context
In 2010 the Madison Square Garden Company bought The Forum and decided to renovate it and use it for concerts and shows at a cost of around fifty million dollars. Renovations were completed in January 2014 and in September of that year it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Forum is not used today primarily as a concert and show venue.
