If you like classical music then Carnegie Hall is one of the most famous concert halls of all time. Try to see a performance there so you can also see the architecture from the inside. Really worth a visit even if seeing a concert is not cheap.

Carnegie Hall is one of those venue which are a milestone for performers because of it's history. History it definitely has when you walk over the multiple levels you will see pictures of many legendary performers that have performed at the Hall. As a visitor though I was rather underwhelmed as the place was quite bland and uninspiring. Acoustics aren't... More

Music makers is the first thing that pops into my mind when I think about Carnegie Hall. It is a beautiful historic theater, and the music seems to live there.

Had my first concert experience here on January 21, 2016. Handicap seat in row three "C", centerstage. They remove four chairs to create more than enough room for my power wheelchair to maneuver; and not make things too difficult for patrons behind me. Seats were spectacular. Staff escorted me from front door to my seat and provided same level of... More

Have given 3 stars purely because we saw the outside of the venue...if we had more time and had been able to go in for a tour etc then I'd have given it more stars...as it is I'm still giving 3 stars as it's a well known venue and something different to visit away from all the other attractions in...

I was actually surprised at how under-whelming the inside of this venue is. But when the music started, it sounded terrific. Definitely come and see a concert here if you have the opportunity. We were there during an "amateur" performance and it was just awesome. Check the tickets and go.

The famous answer to the old question "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?" rings true. The only way to get there is through hard work. The performers are of the most esteemed in the world, but it is more than that. The educated and sophisticated audience understands the journey that these word-class musicians have taken to get to this... More

While Carnegie Hall offers unequaled acoustics and a first-class selection of music offerings, the box office could use a major face lift into the 21st century. A a subscriber to both Geffen Hall and Carnegie Hall, I recently had to exchange one concert in each venue due to unexpected travel. The Geffen Hall exchange was achieved online in a few... 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.
