This is really a great venue to watch college hoops. It's family-friendly, offers great food options and is just a fun place to feel the excitement of college basketball. The staff was super helpful as we had one in our party on crutches. They were great at getting him to his seat, checking the crutches, etc. The energy is unmistakable... More

Me and my partner attended a knicks game, it's a must do if you are going to NYC. The game was great they did lose but it was a great atmosphere and good entertainment during the breaks. The drinks were very expensive $26 for 2 beers.

We went and saw a basketball game and the WWE here. Xmas day and Boxing day. Loved the experience and the arena is build solid for a massive crowd of people. Go early as the security lines are massive and crowded.

Madison Square Garden is an Iconic venue! Not an empty seat in that awesome arena last night, the concessions had some pretty good food selections and lots of Beer and Top shelf liquor selections also. Can't wait to come back to my next Rangers game and my first Knicks game!

They say there's not a bad seat at The Garden - well that's what a couple of people at our hotel said. They were right, there is not a bad seat there and the worst seat has a better view than almost every other venues we've been to. Now you might be thinking how can we possible know this for... More

Madison Square Garden is the worlds most famous arena. It is for good reason. You should definitely check out a sports event or concert when in NYC.

Amazing tour, thoroughly enjoyed this, lots of information shared by tour guides and a great to do if it's raining outside. You get to look all around and all floors too.

We have been to this venue on a couple of occasions to see iconic musicians. On our recent visit we saw Billy Joel perform his 37th concern at this venue. It was a great concert. Importantly, this venue has a magical atmosphere and is the best venue in the world for enjoying a concert. Almost 20,000 people, the casual approach,... More

An amazing experience to see the NY Knicks play. A world class stadium that is easy to enter and get to your seat rapidly. Lots of food choices and drink choices including spirits which is a bit of a novelty for a tourist. Also lots of restrooms so no waiting. A must do if you can swing a sporting event... More

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.
