Did the tour as part of our NY Pass. We wanted an easy but interesting something to do that day. The tour was fantastically hosted. Very informative. No problems. Great way to kill 90 minutes. Perhaps save it for a rainy day.

Came here to watch the Knicks v. Houston. Great atmosphere. Great facility. Seating was excellent and the staff were friendly. But bring your own water as can be expected it can be pricey

Did the tour of The Garden which was ok. Very enthusiastic and knowledgable young guide, but I guees you have to be more into NBA and NHL to get really excited. Alternatively, be very interested in boxing or history. An OK experience, but nothing spectacular.

Went on the All Access Tour which was part of the New York Pass. Tour lasted about 90mins. Our guide was superb, she knew all the various facts and figures (without any notes), was friendly and made the tour very interesting. We sent round the arena where all the food areas are, visited the locker rooms, a couple of private... More

Mind boggling experience , timing was perfect and high energy performance by Katy.Special effects and well organised. Worth every cent. PS : I never knew it was an indoor auditorium and would hv loved to carry a hoddie or something warm. It was a bit too cold in the beginning b4 the show.

I enjoyed the arena, the game was good, I'm a kings fan, and we lost. Sadly. I also saw Luke Bryan preform in January.

We were staying opposite there. It was all lit up lovely, but couldn't find out what was on or enter the building as huge security presence. We found out a couple of days before that Billy Joel was playing, but we missed out on tickets. Plus the cheapest tickets were $250. ouch

Anyone wanting to see Billy play this was awesome. I definitely had a great time removing this bucket list item. Thanks to Billy for a great show and awesome time!
