We were undecided whether to take this tour but were pleased we did as it is very entertaining and good value at $54 for the two of us. We were guided by Dave who did an excellent job and gave us a great insight into this epic Sports and Music venue. There are plenty of photo opportunities too.

Nothing special - just a huge, utilitarian performance space. Not pretty or anything like that. It's sufficient.

We went as a family to watch our first basketball game with the NY Knicks versus the Indiana Pacers - all the entertainment thrown in aside from the game itself was great fun!

This was a once in a lifetime chance for us, booked tickets online for a basketball game. We had also enjoyed the Behind the Scenes tour the previous day, included in our nypass, which was brilliant, and made our game experience even better. Ticketing was easy, entry and finding seats easy, people watching fun, atmosphere fantastic and electric. If you... More

Went to watch a basketball game on our honeymoon. We have been to a lot of sports venues over the world and this is a very good one. It's well organised for getting in and out. I won't mention how the Knicks got on in the game! Only slight complaint is after ordering and paying for a couple of beers... More

We saw How The Grinch Stole Christmas at Madison Square Garden. My daughter really enjoyed it, as did I! The Grinch was funny & reminded me a lot of the character played by Jim Carrey in the movie.

If you have the chance to go to a NBA game during your state in NYC, do not miss it! Going to Madison Square Garden was an amazing experience! We had lots of fun, because besides the game, the shows in between are amazing!!

The MSG is an iconic venue, huge and graceful. It was a wonderful experience to be a part of. We say the New York Knicks play (which was very ordinary) but it didn't matter! The venue more than made up for the atrocious game.

Terrific experience, great atmosphere even though it was pretty much a nothing end of season game and they'd lost 8 or 9 in a row leading up to this game. The match was good, there was plenty going on during time outs and what ever their equivalent of a half time break is called, at the end of each quarter.... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
