We were lucky to be in NYC while there were the concerts by U2. Even though we could not afford pricy tickets we were impressed by the atmosphere of the venue (and Bono, of course :-) ). Try to get there early so you can walk around and see more than just your sector.

It's truly a special feeling visiting Madison square garden during a game, I went there for a rangers game and it was really fun. The bad part was that as a non american citizen you can't buy beer or any other drinks containing alcohol without your passport. A regular ID-card is not accepted. But I would recommend everyone to watch... More

We took a train from Trenton to Penn station for a U2 concert. It's so convenient. The arena is above the station. There are plenty of bars and pubs mostly Irish to hang before the concert. It's such a great place to watch a show. It was electric. They have so much security and people to guide you. They have... More

Say U2 here July 23rd and it was awesome. Led Zeppelin played here. The Concert for Bangladesh was held here as well as many other historic events. If you ever have a chance to see a show here, Go!

I saw U2 on June 30th and was really blown away by the performance. This was my first U2 experience and it definitely lived up to the hype. The band really offers something for everyone and a lot of the music is so fascinatingly deep and moving. The interactive features in the show only add value to the experience and... More

We saw U2 a couple of nights this week. Aside from the show, which for me, went down as one of the best I've seen - they always deliver. The arena was great. It was clean, reasonably priced and very modern for an old arena. Acoustically, it was a great venue. The songs were crisp and clear with no echo.... More

We didn't get to see any shows or games unfortunately, but we did have a look around and WOW what a stadium this is. Just to be here was exciting so I can imagine to be here and see a game of some kind would be brilliant.

This is one of the most famous and oldest venues in NY. Hundreds of big named concerts occur here. This is the home of the NY Knicks, and you can also watch the NY Rangers play here

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.
