How embarrassing for Gridskipper. Their brand new 'New York Celebrity Death Map' has, as its first entry, Stanford White's death at Madison Square Garden.

And while it is true that they have correctly placed MSG at Seventh Avenue and West 33rd Street, they sort of missed the fact -- one that I thought was well-known -- that it didn't open at that site until the 1960s. When White was killed, the Garden was at East 26th Street and Madison Avenue.

That would be an 'oops,' Gridskipper. Better luck next time.
