Solution in plain sight for MSG move?

Yesterday, we received a notable comment regarding MSG’s move to the Farley Building:
“The more I stare at the attached photo the more I get upset, because a solution to this argument is in plain sight.
All this talk of moving MSG into the Farley building, when right across the street is a perfectly sized area that could accommodate a new Garden. All that they’d need is a platform over the railroad operations. I certainly can’t be the first person who has noticed this.
Why in the world must they complicate things by trying to hijack the Farley building? Just cross 9th Ave. and give the space they were eyeing to the station and retails plans. Everyone wins.”
Well, this is a development site, but it’s a good idea and an arena could probably work given some political will.
