We attended a beautiful affair at Carnegie Hall. The staff was very efficient - ticket takers and elevator staff. We were seated in box seats on the second level and had incredible sound and sight from our seats. Loved the tiered level seats (3 short seats in front, 3 taller seats across the middle, 3 bar stool height seats in... More

The hall is now several halls, all designed for different sizes of audience. I saw an impressive piano recital in the Zankel Hall. Well organised - comfortable seats - excellent acoustic.

What a great combination of beautiful architecture and the arts. We had an excellent tour guide who took us through the building and it's glorious history. The museum is not to be missed as it offers not only Carnegie artifacts and ephemera but a terrific timeline showing the illustrious artists that have performed there.

Carnegie Hall is a beautiful, classic venue for concerts. With a location on 7th Avenue and 57th Street, it is in the heart of the city. We had dinner across the street from Carnegie Hall, and then walked down to Times Square to take in the sights. There is so much to do within walking distance. If you plan to... More

Handel's Mesiah done right. Sat way up in the balcony but that's what was left. If the sign says Sold Out, go to the boix office anyway, you still might get a ticket. Am a Friend and have been for years.

Beautiful historic theatre. Great ealry architecture, worth seeing an event or show here. Balcony seating offers a great view of the stage as well as the detailed architectural features. Not impressed with the rude staff at closing.

We weren't fortunate enough to be able to make a concert in this fantastic venue, but we had a delightful tour from Jerry, who seemed to have a genuine love for the old building, and it was great to hear the rich history that drips from it walls. Well done!

Came to a special Veterans tribute concert, a new choral and orchestra work and Beethoven's 9th. What a great concert space and wonderfully appointed space! A real treat!

The acoustics in the hall was unbelievable, there was such a form of clarity not found in any other hall I've visited before. Soundproofing might need some work, sirens from outside can be heard during performances which is slightly disturbing. Great venue for concerts!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
