Sports bucket list: Top 10 coolest seats in sports

Madison Square Garden just unveiled a pair of bridges that CEO Hank Ratner said provide a one-of-a-kind view.

As part of $1 billion, 3-year, inside out remodeling of the "World's Most Famous Arena," MSG put 430 new seats on two "Chase Bridges" suspended from the spoked ceiling.The 233-foot long by 22-feet wide bridges run parallel to the court or ice. Their over-the-top location gives you a bird's-eye view of the New York Knicks or Rangers games 50 feet below.

"This is [the] most unique seat you can get for sports or entertainment—anywhere," Ratner said.

With the Garden unveiling its Bridge Seats, we compiled a must-see top 10 list of seats/suites that are not necessarily the most expensive, but some provide a view you've never seen before while others enable you to see and be seen—with the movers and shakers of Wall Street, Hollywood and sports.

So put them on your bucket List. Use them to entertain your best client. Or reward your best employees.
