Great little park to hang out and read a book, watch people, eat (several restaurants on the streets around the park) or watch/listen to street entertainment. Currently, there is also an art exhibit (Fata Morgana) on display which should not be missed.

It was an ideal concert venue, well planned and easily accessible from different points. Nice restaurant and a lounge too. Only downside was the escalators that stopped working after the concert. Maintenance could do better!!!

This is easily my favorite place in New York! Attending a Knicks game is so cool! Even if you're not that into basketball, it's worth catching a game - you'll be in for a whole entertainment experience! The facility also hosts music concerts and other events (sports and otherwise), which are also very nice, but to me, there's nothing like... More

We saw Bette Midler here and what a place. A fantastic place for a concert, seating very comfortable and if you are high up there are plenty of TV screens to see the stage. Impressive and very close to the city of New York

We attended the Bette Midler concert at MSG and had a great time. The venue is very easy to get around and had everything you would want as far as food and drink. So glad I got to experience this landmark MSG!

I work a block away from the Garden and really enjoy going to wNBA Liberty Games. The arena is fantastic! The only problem is upon entry or exit the amount of people asking for money is growing. I know it is not MSG's fault and they have security people out front all day long but this block attracts a certain... More

We had literally the last seat in the house lol still a great view but you can't see the big screen from up top so better getting a seat lower down. Game was ace. Atmosphere was... More

Easy to get in and out of. Quick access to restrooms from seats. Only complaint would be that MSG was the only place in America that we came across that required our passports to prove our age whereas everywhere else our new Zealand drivers license have been sufficient

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.
