Went for the Westminster dog show. I am only average height, but my legs are quite long. After less than an hour, I was quite uncomfortable because the seats are packed closely and my knees hit the seat in front of me. Navigating the venue is quite easy, though.

Visited Madison Square Garden for first time this evening to see Billy Joel and his fabulous band. What a night ! 2.5 hours of high intensity music with humour and exceptional musicianship thrown in. The venue was easy to reach off 8th Avenue and we entered very easily following a security screening process. We were sitting in block 221 so... More

We did the tour and the logistic behind such a place must be crazy... We saw pretty much everything, and it just made us want to go there for some game/show. Our guide was passionate for his workplace, and it definitely one of the most interesting places we visited. (Part of the NY Pass)

Being a sports fan, this is a place that you must at least visit as it is steeped in history. As a hockey fan, there was no way I was going to miss the opportunity to see the Rangers at home and boy we were not disappointed. I hate to say it but the Rangers fans are more into the... More

We came here for an awesome Prime Time matchup of Knicks vs Cavs. The view was good, the in game scoreboard showed all of the celebs in attendance and the food, drink, shop were all excellent. There is a special feel being in "The Garden". Entrance was cool because they quickly get you through the metal detectors and in the... More

I attended NBA - New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers- it was absolutely amazing experience and made me hungry for more! the atmosphere is phenomenal and although money for tickets were pricy - they paid for a good seats and unforgettable time.

Been at an NBA event and there is nothing in the world more exciting that this game played at Madison Square Garden. A little bit expensive and if possible try to manage the booking in advance online.

Don't come see the knicks, the crowds have gotten watered down from a combination of price increases and poor performance. But this is still a historic arena and you feel the special atmosphere here.

Great experience from beginning to end- Easy to get to (Penn Station is right there), clean and well designed building, and notably friendly and helpful ushers and staff. Very attentive security personnel as well. Good food and drink choices, and high definition monitors are mounted in the upper sections so you don't miss any details. Great venue.

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.
