This is a great concert venue. We sat front row center of level four. The view and acoustics were great but there was not much leg room.

We visited here on April 28, 2018. My daughter, along with her school and several others, performed here. The building is so beautiful. You feel the history as you walk through the halls. I definitely recommend!

Beutiful old building. The smallest recital hall where my son played was cozy but still beautiful with good sound effect

Many people who have never been to Carnegie Hall will be shocked at the simplicity of the actual performance hall when you walk inside. The theatre is a simple cream color, with golden Rocco period styling on the stage and throughout the performance space. What...More

There was not much to see aside from the Stern Concert Hall but the history was interesting. Good rainy day activity.

We like Applejack Diner, 1725 Broadway. Not fancy, but delicious home cooking and great service.
