One of the great concert venues in America. The history is amazing... just being in the hall is amazing. The sound is excellent. If you're visiting NYC pick an event and enjoy.

We were here to watch our daughter participate in a chorus event. My wife wanted to purchase something from the gift shop for a memento, the shop is small with only one cash register and the line was out the door. Took her about an hour to finally purchase a couple of trinkets. The place is totally amazing for any... More

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,!

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.
