magnificent place to hear music, beautiful décor, comfortable seating, the detail inside the hall is exquisite; I had the pleasure of listening to Mozart's Requiem and Bach's Magnificat - what an amazing way to spend a night in NYC

A legendary institution. Arguably the finest performance venue in the country. Perfect acoustics, size, seating and comfort. You've not been to New York City if you haven't gone to Carnegie Hall, where the world finest musicians perform. Every musicians' dream is to play here, and you really haven't made until you've performed here. How do you get to Carnegie Hall?... More

Went on a Friday night for a comedy show. We sat in Blavatnik Family First Tier 1st row it was a good view but its a small space with chairs 3 rows then the door is right behind you. You are not allowed to drink in the seats so you have to get drinks on the 1st or 3rd floors... More

Again, a short must do visit to this splendind attraction. Not as good as the Radio city tour, but still very interesting. Our trip was party ruined by some over efficious tour guide man who talked as if he owned the place. What a poor guide, telling people of for touching their phones, complaining about competing with noise of others... More

We visited to hear the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and Children's Choir perform an original work commissioned by them, Zabur, with the composer in attendance. Our daughter is a member of the choir and remarked that this is the first venue where they could sing in normal voice with no effort and fill the hall with their voices. She also commented... More

This is a superb venue which has a "grandeur" feel to it. It is impressive from the outside as well as inside and worth a visit.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly! The group was small, took less than 90 minutes, we were allowed to take pictures during the tour. Music City Hall backstage tour, Rockefeller Center Tour and Carnegie Hall tour share similar advantages: Visitors are allowed to tour and take pictures of places where they usually are not allowed / afford to visit....

The hall itself is like a finely made musical instrument, and the rehearsal spaces are likewise of the finest accoustics quality. I sang here with the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, and from any spot on the stage we could hear absolutely everything. What a treasure.

The old adage of the tourist asking how to get to Carnegie Hall and getting the standard reply; ...'practice, practise, practise...' is as old as the hills and always worth repeating. Carnegie Hall is a place where everyone should at least go once. This world famous institution is a pride and joy and a must-see of the gorgeous interiors, apart... 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.
