The Garden that hosts incredible concerts and of course the Knicks and Rangers is well organized and security at the venues has not been an issue late after sporting events. The Sky Boxes are awesome but best seeing sporting events with the crowds energy!

You are constantly entertained and the huge central video screens, makes sure that you that you do not miss a bit from the action. I also... More

What a location. Went to see Billy Joel on 20th Aug. Fantastic concert firstly but the access to and egress from MSG was brilliant. Food and drink a little pricey but you don't HAVE to but it.

I booked tickets for us to watch the New York Rangers v Vancouver Canucks in February. I am not that interested in ice hockey but my partner loves it. Unexpectedly, I had an absolutely amazing time watching the hockey in NYC. The MSG experience is something special and it is definitely a 'must do' for anyone visiting NYC.

What an amazing place! We were showed around by Kevin, a brilliant tour guide who not only gave us intricate information about the place, but also several trivia which made the tour both interesting an enjoyable! We visited MSG in the morning before Kevin Hart's show and had a chance to view the amazing procedure that is building up the... More

I've been to lots of stadiums and sports arenas, this is by far the best! It has something for everyone of all ages, sports and music fans can enjoy lots of good memories there. I didn't get to go to a game as it was the Stanley cup play offs so tickets were like gold dust, but we done the... More

My wife treated me to a trip to New York City to see Billy Joel at the Garden. Now I've been to some big venues before but this place was amazing. Ushers everywhere to help you find your way, a huge screen to better see Billy, and a great sound system. Did have a little trouble finding the entrance and... More

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.
