Noticed a lot of reviews here commenting on the outside of the building & the tour. Which are interesting. And its a section of the city that we love... some of our favorite restaurants are here. But really.. the building??? You have to actually buy tickets to a concert. The acoustics are astounding. Go and have fun.

As beautiful as Carnegie Hall is on the outside, do not miss going in for an afternoon tour. Several are offered throughout the week and I have never been so inspired and educated as by the Hall itself and of course the docents who are so intimate with the building. I cannot wait to take the chance now to see... More

This is another attractive New York building which is well worth a look if you're in the area. Attractive architecture and close to Central Park. We didn;t venture inside but probably should have.

Phenomenal acoustics in a classy 5 tier theatre. Located just a few blocks from Central Park and 8-9 blocks from Times Square plenty to do before or after the show!

Amazing historical landmark. I have had the privilege of performing here twice, and seeing numerous other live performances and they just get better and better. The historical bit just makes it that much better!!!

We went to NYC at the invitation of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, with the award ceremony at Carnegie Hall. What a treat! Carnegie Hall is beautiful and elegant, and we felt special just being there.

We took the tour and loved it. Being able to sit in that beautiful concert hall and imagine the great performers who have stood on that stage was truly a treat. The museum at the end of the tour was also very interesting. Lots of great memorabilia of acts who have played Carnegie Hall.

I did the Carnegie Hall tour and just loved everything about it! I did not know they have a tour until I saw it on the list of my New York Pass book which by the way, was very useful! It worth just to step into the theatre and see the amazing construction and listen to its history!

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.
