Auto Show
The New York Auto Show (now the New York International Auto Show) began in Madison Square Garden in the 19th century as "The Bicycle and Automobile Show." It remains one of New York's longest running shows.

The 2006 NYIAS will showcase some of the hottest concept and production cars ever seen. Many of the vehicles will be cutting-edge innovative design studies, others just a few steps away from production, but all provide a window on the future of automobile design and technology. In addition, more than 43 vehicle manufacturers will feature over 1000 new cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs.

22 January 1899, New York Times, pg. IMS13:
THE BICYCLE AND AUTOMOBILE SHOW.

CONTRARY to the prediction of many prominent people in the bicycle trade. Madison Square Garden was, last evening, again thrown open to the public with a most cordial invitation to come and witness the grandest show, both of bicycles and automobiles, that has ever been held in this and perhaps in any other country.
