But mind you, there are ways to transfer loads that could allow more space to be opened up. It's a cage of steel beams and columns that support all of the structures (don't forget, MSG is on a shock absorber that separates it from the theater).
At any rate, it would allow so much to be opened up, virtually creating a full entrance to Penn on 9 Ave between 31 and 33 Streets. A proper entry point, feeding directly into a multi-story waiting room. Basically restoring a touch of how the old room functioned.
