Been there for sporting events (Rangers, Knicks, etc), comedy shows (Louis CK, Bill Maher, etc), the circus or another event. Madison Square Garden is great with tasty food selection, good beers and drinks, a variety of rooms, and much more. A great NYC spot!

We were very lucky to have one of the most passionate people escorting us on the behind the scenes tour. He was a huge sporting fan and absolutely loved what he was doing. Extremely interesting tour and would definitely recommend

There are few words that can describe seeing Billie Joel at MSG. The atmosphere, the music, the crowd, the history - all awe-inspiring to say the least. Regardless of the band or musician or club you cheer for you must make MSG a bucket list spot. Highly recommend trying an adult beverage inside, the guys at the booths are hilarious... More

It is about 8 blocks from Times Square , New York. Penn Railway Station is adjacent to it. Walk from to Time Square and observe the New York City life depending when you are here weekdays , weekends or long weekends. The whole area will be jam packed in weekends and long weekends with tourists. BH Photo Video and Adorama... More

We went to watch Billy Joel, and part from his great show and performance, the Garden made a great impression as a venue. What a place. The atmosphere. Words cannot describe, just go there.

Went here for a wwe wrestling event. This building is very iconic and one most wresting fans are intrigued to go to. Staff were very polite and dressed a lot smarter than your average security. I was glad to be a part of history in that venue

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
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.
