Top of the mountain for performers. Part of visiting choir from Chicago performing an original oratorical. Impressed with the history hanging on the walls and the sound in the main auditorium.

As a music lover Carnegie Hall has a special place in my heart. The visiting orchestras and the fantastic acoustics of this hall are 2nd to none. I lived in NYC for over a decade during which time I averaged 2 performances a month at Carnegie Hall. This is the one experience I'll always make time for when I'm in... More

Attended 2 concerts whilst in NY and enjoyed both. My only complaint is the steepness of the seating & the fact that it is not friendly to elderly concert goers.

This grand old building gives you a buzz as soon as you come through the front doors! You are struck by the 1900 period feeling, just as if you are back in the good old Vaudeville days! The main Theatre has lost none of it's old features and serves up a treat!

Beautiful place for a concert. Just loved it. The sound was great. You don't get a bad seat anywhere. A tour is pretty informative as wel.

What a thrill to be in the audience at this excellent concert. Reading the history of the building it was lucky to remain standing in the sixties. Beautiful auditorium, and the NY joke of how do you get to CH, the answer is practice ...practice.. practice

We attended the Casting Crowns performance. This was our first visit. It did not disappoint. I was worried after reading reviews that seats were not comfortable. The seats were very comfortable. Yes, we are tall so the seats are very close to the next row, but this you find at most theaters. The sound, the music, the entire evening was... More

This will be my first trip to New York City! My Grandson is a member of the UW Madison Wind Ensemble and am anxious to hear them play here!! I have read some of the reviews and hopefully won't get seating in the areas where one can't see the stage very well. I would love to do a tour but... More

Attending this concert in the beautiful, history rich Carnegie Hall was a highlight of our short stay in Manhattan. We were mesmerized by the amazing performance of the St. Luke's Orchestra. We had great seats and were especially impressed by the concert pianist Stephen Hough who performed Dvorak's Piano Concerto. Very enjoyable evening, perfect for a very cold night in... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
