Very well organised stadium, with lots of choice for food and drinks. Give extra time to get through security.

This is the first time that I have visited MSG and the venue is amazing for basketball. Lots of food & drink outlets on the concourse and the price for beer is pretty steep at $13-14 for a pint.

Good show by a great showman and entertainer..His monthly show drags in fans from across the nation and is not to be missed. Acoustics are as good as can be expected but the air filtration system was overpowered.

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

There was security line before you gave tickets for concert, Gotta believe the same is true for a knicks game. Line for us took 1/2 hour. Give yourself plenty of time,,,,better to be early than late.
