“Access All Areas Tour - Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

The newly renovated Garden is pretty stunning with state of the art everything and great transport links. The new 'bridge walkway' over the seats affords unbeatable views. The tour takes you to every section and even a peak inside the Knicks and Rangers changing rooms. You'll also see the exclusive members only area and the VIP 1879 club that you'd normally get nowhere near. My visit was capped off by seeing LeBron coach a fantasy basketball game, prettty awesome but that's very rare to see. Do the tour, watch a game and see a show this is one of the best arenas in the world

“Take in a game!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Went & watched the New York Rangers vs Colorado Avalanche hockey at MSG. What a great venue, reasonable food/drink prices with plenty of options. Great atmosphere at the game & plenty of people there interacting with the crowd during intervals. Efficient ticketing/access to the venue too, there were loads of people in the lobby beforehand but there was minimal queuing to get in to the game.

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I have seen the garden on TV and it looks like a dump. However was totally fooled when I went inside. The garden is comfortable, friendly staff, and the decor inside is impressive. In the concourse it shows the history which was entertaining.

“MSG Suites is Sweet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Had the pleasure of going to the Justin Timberlake and watching it from the Suites section compliments of my Organization. It's way up, but it's a nice comfortable view. They had some fixins, grilled hot dogs, chips and salsa, beer, wine, water. If you don't want that, there's a consession floor on the 6th floor with more food choices. Super expensive though. I paid $14.25 for a dry chicken sandwich...I doubt you can bring your own food or beverages.
The bad thing is that they have TV's in the room, but are turned off during the concert..

“All Access Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

This was a tour behind the scenes and you get to see everywhere! It is fascinating and interesting. Not one we would have done if the weather had been better. But I am glad we did this and would highly recommend it.
