Recently saw Jazz Giants, Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock in a duet piano concert at Carnegie hall. This is of course one of the most infamous music venues of all time made famous for classical music in general but has been a great space for many other genres. It is well know for its highly engineered acoustics in which the... More

Impressive venue that has hosted historic talent. I recommend this as a must-do experience in NYC - either take a tour, or watch a show - preferably the latter. During a past trip, we just happened to be walking by the venue, when a woman approached us with cheap tickets to see the New Jersey Symphony perform with dramatic, Jim... More

We wanted to do the Carnegie Hall tour but the hall was closed for tours due to high school orchestral concerts taking place. For $10 a head admittance we got to sit in a box in Carnegie Hall and listen to some excellent music played by some truly talented American students. It was one of the best events on our... More

The theater was breathtaking in it's simplistic elegance and the acoustically perfect sound left me speechless. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to watch/listen to a performance in this famous venue!

Beautiful architecture and very welcoming staff. Interesting tour where the tour guides were very knowledgable about the history of the building. We were lucky enough to see a concert in action at the time. We would recommend getting your tickets in advance as it can be difficult to get space on a tour.

I had no ticket to enter this timeless theater palace but even from outside I good sense the great art that had past between its walls. To all my friends that have preformed here I stood at its door and took a moment to recall them. Remembering one had told me,” if had not accomplished anything else in my life,... More

Although we were seated in the gods, we enjoyed the thrill of being in the Carnegie Hall NY listening to first class operatics stars accompanied by this wonderful orchestra. I am sure we were the only two people there who had been in the other Carnegie Hall Dunfermline (Scotland) just last month listening to a jazz concert!!

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.
