Attended to see my daughter perform with her choral group. Great venue. All seats appear to be good seats. No photography or recording. I wish they had opened with a short explanation for those who don't attend symphony type concerts. Until the conductor places their arms at their side you are not to applause. Some applauded in the middle of... More

Everything you've heard and more! We saw a recital at the Weill Recital hall-- so beautiful, and such amazing acoustics! Be sure to visit the display cases in the basement- loads of memorabilia!!

As much as we have always associated Carnegie Hall with the pinnacle of the highest honors and recognition in the world of the classical music, our first time at Carnegie Hall was to see the brilliant French actor and stand-up comedian Gad Elmaleh. Very impressive interior, and a very spacious at that. Every tier has its separate buffet counter which... More

We did the tour of the hall. Our tour guide, Ruth, was very knowledgable. She not only made it personal for us by asking why we are from but was so interesting that the one hour tour ran over. So plan plenty of time, ask for Ruth and enjoy.

Go early so that you may stop into the museum, see the little (tiny) gift shop, browse the framed music scores lining the hallways (Chopin, Pete Seeger, etc). We went for Bruckner's 9th and a Mozart concerto. Fabulous acoustics. Wonderful theater. Well worth getting tickets for. No tours available that day but would love to do that.

The only thing that we regretted was ordering a very small glass of... More

Last minute tickets for Bruckner 8th and we sat Parquet left side and were impressed with the wonderful sound quality! Venue is classic and cozy and seats were unexpectedly comfortable given the 90 minute performance without intermission.

We visited Carnegie Hall for the 60th anniversary Edith Piaf tribute concert early in January. The music and the singing were excellent and the atmosphere was so alive! The theatre is like a number of theatres in France or England, including the decor style. The staff were dressed in a style of uniform that you would associate with say, 50... More

We recently attended a wonderful performance of Piaf! The Show. It is always fun to learn more about this music hall. The Carnegie Hall blog has many interesting stories about performers, performances, and details of this famous hall. One of the best is this joke. Spend enough time around 57th Street and Seventh Avenue in New York City, and you’re... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
