“A real jewel”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Went to a symphony concert as a last minute decision. Box office staff were warmly friendly and helpful. The center and the concert hall itself are world class - super acoustics and sightlines.

“really great venue great sound”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This is a modem great looking facility. They did a great job in design and construction. And the acoustics are exceptional. Tony Bennett actually raved about them. Very easy train bus light rail and cab access. Near the ironbound section for great food

“Great”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This place has the best sound system, there are no bad seats. The one problem that I have with venues like this sometimes you might end up seating next to someone that's obest and you don't have room and/or can't enjoy your concert because your pinned down.

My family and I went for America's Got Talent. Very impressive building, comparable with some of the finest places I've ever been. A pleasant surprise!

Four family members were entertained on 2/15/14 by the "Tenors". The entire atmosphere was wonderful. Highly recommend NJPAC.
