Went into a New York Rangers Ice hockey game against The Carolina Hurricanes. The place was very well put together Even though I Live in Boston and I am a Bruins Fan! The Fans were great and the Atmosphere was just the same. I would recommend this venue for sure

In town to watch our University of North Dakota take on Boston College. A great arena. Lots of choices for food, drink but costly.

Recently saw a Knicks game here. A must visit for sports fans. Fans are intense and sometimes a bit nasty. We had a great time, fun to see celebrities too.

Madison Square Garden is a historical NYC destination. The best part for me were the seat's. No matter were you sit you can see the main attraction with out a flaw (unless theres a tall person siting in front of you.) I really have no complaints but one. The ushers. Every time I've been there they have been wrong about... More

Whenever you attend MSG for whatever event of your choosing there is a certain majestic presence abut the place. It's hallowed ground and the crowd is usually very into the event presented whether it be sports-oriented or othewise. I have been going there for over 55 years(including it's predecessors) and the Garden always pleases me. So basketball, Hockey, concerts, circus,... More

Got tickets for the Dec. 1, Stevie Nicks/Pretenders concert. We had Suite tickets that were fantastic. Everyone had a great time and the crowd was handled with a well run crew with security in mind. We enjoyed the concert and at the end everyone left the venue in good spirits.

I have been to Madison Square Garden many times over the years from the circus to Rangers and Knicks games to concerts. I was excited to see what the renovated MSG would look like when my family and I went to a Billy Joel concert. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. The concert itself was great.

Nice arena. Great food choices. Deli sandwich was humongous. Chairs have cup holder in front of seat. Scoreboard screen is very nice. For some reason unknown, the escalators are turned off when you exit. Great seats near the Knicks bench, Section 110. Would definitely go back to attend a game.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
