NY Knicks/Rangers (NBA/NHL): Chase Bridge seats

Price: $110 to $210

Where: Madison Square Garden, New York

When: 41 home games per regular season for each club, not counting the preseason or playoff games.

What: 430 seats on two Chase Bridges weighing 330 tons apiece.

Why: How about a view you've never seen in the 45-year history of the current Garden. The viewing angle from the front row of the Bridge seats is a much steeper—43 degrees versus 22 degrees from the front row of the upper bowl. There are two rows, with bar stool seats behind them.

How: On sale for the 2013-2014 season. Because of the novelty, they're being "snapped up quickly," Ratner said.

Inside tip: Even if you don't have seats, you can walk the bridges, which were inspired by the many suspension bridges linking New York City. You get a view of the court or ice on one side; upper bowl fans on the other.
