Started out a little slow, but our tour guide, Brandon, was amazing! Super friendly and knowledgeable. Would love to go see a Knicks game with him

We stopped to have a brief look around the reception area of MSG and we were sucked into a boxing promotion by Lennix Lewis - we wished it was the day of a hockey game or basketball match - but we had to make do with an ex World Heavyweight Champion

I came here to get a Rangers Jersey and try to have a look around. It was a bit tricky to find the correct entrance and then (midday on a Saturday) all of the shops and things seemed to be closed. I went to a sports shop for my Jersey in the end. Considering the reception I got at arena's... More

Having visited many stadiums and arenas around the world, we were not disappointed by the guided tour we received in one of the most famous/iconic arenas on the planet. Our guide, Mike, was both friendly and informative without being too pushy. We were shown around "The Garden" and captured many fantastic photographs. Unfortunately, due to a convention taking place, we... More

We stayed at a hotel just opposite MSG. So we decided to book tickets to see two games, Ice hockey and basketball. We did not regret our decision. The stadium it's self is amazing, it has everything you would ever need when seeing a game. The food selection is spectacular, the seats are comfortable, the massive state of the art... More

Have visited MSG many times and always love it. It is such a great venue with plenty of access to food and drinks, great staff to direct you around and easy access both in and out of the arena. Watched my favourite hockey team, the NY Rangers, which was a great experience. Well worth a visit whatever is showing or... More

The tour of Madison Square Gardens is good. The history in the building is incredible. So many photos of previous events are great to see. Should have a little more time to tour the entire building.

We visited this rather famous stadium twice last year. Once to have an excellent 90 minute tour taking in everything you would expect of such an interesting place with all the history, stories and intersting facts and figures. We then came back 3 days later and took in the first Knicks game of the 2015/2016 season. The lost (big!) but... 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.
