The Madison Square Garden (also known as The Garden) [1] is is a famous indoor arena in Midtown Manhattan and located at 8th Avenue, between 31st and 33rd Streets.


After his first encounter with the Ghostbusters, Chi-You realized he needed true warriors for his army if he were to conquer Earth. Chi-You ordered Casey Jones, still possessed, to find those more like him. Casey directed Chi-You to the Madison Square Garden. They disrupted Game 1 of the NHL Eastern Conference Quarterfinal game between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens. He began transmogrifying the players into his thralls. A civilian called 911 on his cell phone and managed to tell them about a bull-headed ghost before Chi-You detonated it. The Ghostbusters were in turn called by 911 and apprised of the disturbance.

The Ghostbusters and Turtles drove to the Garden in Ecto-2. Donatello ran in ahead of the others and shot wildly at Chi-You. While Donatello and the Ghostbusters took aim at Chi-You, the others fought his thralls. Winston Zeddemore sneaked up to the upper row of seats and opened a Trap on Chi-You. They discovered the direct connection between Chi-You and his thralls prevented his capture. Casey pounced on Winston, quickly advised him to take out all thralls first then punched him out and freed Chi-You. Chi-You threatened the Ghostbusters and Turtles before vanishing with his thralls.
