Perfect acoustics, great views from all seats, a true treasure. It is truly a must see in NY. And as they old joke goes, "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?"

I was lucky enough to sing a concert on the stage of this historic place. The hall is beautiful! The staff are very nice and accommodating and the sounds are unlike anything you've heard before

There were seats available for the National Youth Orchestra and since our kids are becoming talented musicians we decided to purchase seats. We were in the balcony and could only get partial view seats, which really did not get in the way of listening to the music. The performance itself was special in so many ways --- seeing these kids... More

Fantastic evening here. We sat in the balcony area.......... Wow!! The private little booths overlooking the stage are amazing!! We loved it!! If in Manhattan, the experience of going to a concert here and sitting in the balcony area is an amazing experience.

Am so lucky to have been invited to attend graduation of my nephew held in this prestigious hall. The interior is so detailed and elegant. We were perfectly seated in the balcony. Awesome,!

As to what you may hear and see at Carnegie Hall, the venue is second to none. As to the acoustics; I have not heard any better than this; in fact, I think it is the acoustic envy of other venues. Every seat in the house is perfect for listening. Now, as to the reasons that it did not get... More

Historic, iconic music venue (not just classical, either) two blocks S of Central Park on 7th Ave. between 56th and 57th. Take the N, Q, or R lines to the 57th St. / 7th Ave stop and you are there. Walk north a half-block along 7th and you are there. FOR TOURS. Tours happen from early October through the end... More

We went to see John Mellencamp here in April. He played in the Stern Auditorium. There is not a single bad seat in the place. I would take a ticket anywhere in the auditorium for an artist I wanted to see. I will say, this is a smaller venue. You are not at a big concert. If you are here... 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.
