What a delightful afternoon listening to a piano concert in this Recital Hall adjacent to Carnegie Hall. It is intimate, acoustics are wonderful, and the price is right! Marco Ciampi performed a Bach and Rachmoninoff which were exquisite. His ability to weave subtle emotional tones with dramatic passages assures him a top position as a concert pianist. Don't miss concerts... More

Disappointed that we were unable to take photographs of this iconic venue. I can understand them not being allowed when a concert is on but cannot see the problem when the hall is empty. Our guide was very informative and the tour lasted one hour. Again disappointed we couldn't get to see 'behind the scenes'

I was here to watch the shen yun symphony orchestra. I honestly don't think that there's a bad seat in the house. The 1st tier settings are obviously great, but even the main floor settings looks very good. The upper balcony sittings are high up and we'll tiered. The acoustics in the hall is wonderful. The show is 1st class... More

Loved every bit of my event at Carnegie Hall. Would keep coming back. Maybe seat in the side balconies the next time.

This is a somewhat short tour---about 30 or 40 minutes long, but very interesting and well worth it. Our guide was a volunteer and really well informed. We went behind the scenes and learned all about the history of the building and some of the stars who have appeared there. We definitely recommend this tour.

Actually I went just because so many great artists have performed here, including the greatest of them all: Harry Belafonte.

Carnegie hall, as one would expect, attracts world class musicians in a venue with excellent acoustics. Due to its history and quality, one can expect just about any concert at Carnegie hall to be excellent. I think the place speaks for itself, but there are some observations I would like to make - Electronic tickets not always available - Carnegie... More

I'd like now to continue with my reviews about New York. Since, we ( my wife and I ) have been, back in 2005, in the hotel Pennsylvania, we normally explored most that region around the hotel, when we didn't use the subway to get to some distant points of such megalopolis as it is New York. In such walking,... More
