Nice to sit on a warm day watching the world go by. Much used by the locals with their dogs and children. Grass areas to picnic, even a doggy play area! Shake Shack with long queues, but a nearby pop up food market had delicious food from many countries. Easy to relax and chill!

The fabulous energy that surrounds an iconic hockey arena is awesome! There is a tour available but just being in the building is fabulous.

I was not sure if this would be interesting... however it was amazing.. we had a great tour guide named Gabe.. he was enthusiastic and made the tour a blast. We had insider view of the most recently upgraded arena.. with 1 billion dollars in upgrades this venue is the best. We saw every inch of it, including the locker... More

We bought basketball tickets for our son's birthday and enjoyed a fantastic evening! Madison Square Garden is certainly 'a bucket list' experience if you are a basketball fan. We bought tickets from stubhub and found a great deal.

There is so much history associated with this venue that it is a must to do. There is an activity most nights of the week presenting a wide variety of attractions to choose from. We watched a music consert at the garden and two nights later they presented a sports activity.

It's a bit of a different set up But fantastic acoustics for a concert! I saw Billy Joel don't pick a rear seat but either do in front or side view and it doesn't matter how high up as you will have a great view of the stage!

We only walked by the MSG and saw the huge crowd gathering in front and discovered they were watching the game 7 of the Rangers and Lightnings conference final on the JumboTron. The crowd was loud and pretty loaded but well behaved with constant "Let's Go Rangers" chants. With a bunch of NYPD's finests there they should behave. We left... More

This concert was amazing, and Madison Square Garden was awesome. It was easy in and out of the stadium, and easy to find our seats.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
