My first time and what an amazing performance. The venue was the best and very accommodating for a person with a disability. I had an excellent and comfortable view of the stage.

This is such a great venue. The only things to keep in mind - the rows of seats are VERY close to each other so your legs will be squished. Not a problem for me but I saw a lot of uncomfortable tall people. There's also no A/C from what I could tell so it gets hot, even in winter.... More

We went for a NY Pops concert and had seats int he "parquet" area which is orchestra level. Seats were reasonably comfortable and the acoustics were very good. There are three balconies. The first one wraps to the front, the second balcony is comes not quite so far forward and the third is just at the back. You won't be... More

We heard a string quartet in Zankel Hall -- part of Carnegie Hall . This compact venue has great acoustics-- a bright sound-- and an intimate feel.

We have been by Carnegie Hall many times but never been inside so we decided to take the tour. Obviously, the best way to experience Carnegie Hall is during a concert but the tour is very informative. The place is still a stunning architectural marvel considering it was built over 100 years ago by Andrew Carnegie. Who knew it took... More

Having been to a number of great concert venues I was greatly looking forward to going to Carnegie Hall. It was a huge disappointment. Shabby and uncomfortable just about sums it up. It gave the impression of not having had a penny spent on it in the last 50 years and the seating was amongst the most uncomfortable I have... More

Worth seeing the building but I was not really impressed by our guide. The guide was an older lady that knew a lot about the building and performers, but I felt that I was on a school trip with a teacher. Had the impression that other guide was better.

What can you say about Carnegie Hall! Wow! We saw a chamber orchestra on Oct. 15, featuring beautiful works by Mendelssohn (Overture to a Midsummer Night's Dream) and Schumann (Symphony No. 2 in C major). I wasn't keen on the very new composition (by Wolfgang Rihm) being show-cased by Mira Wang (violinist) and Jan Vogler (cellist). Clearly, Wang and Vogler... More

Went to a Joshua Bell concert, we were siting in the Belcony. The acoustics were were good but very little leg room, recommend get an aisle seat so you can stretch!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
