Even in the cheap seats, the sound was amazing. We could hear every little nuance. We purchased almost the cheapest seats in the house, and the sound and view was fantastic. They did offer seats with "partially blocked views" even cheaper at the box office than advertised elsewhere, if you are on a drastic budget.

Went there this evening with my hubby and watched a brilliant tribute show to singers an songwriters. With an almost packed house, performances were jaw-dropping as the orchestra delivered a spectacular and flawless performance along with guest artists whose vocal abilities were nothing but triumphant. A fabulous show that was enjoyed by all in a building that holds memories of... More

The venue is so incredibly beautiful and the acoustics in the building make you hear music like you have never heard it before. The box seats make you feel like you can see everything in the Hall. Quirky little gift shop with lots of reminders on how you get to Carnegie Hall...practice, practice, practice!

2016 was our first year to enjoy Carnegie Hall and we enjoyed the experience so much that we made sure to attend again this year, 2017. I am sorry it took us so long to find this jewel.

well, we're keen to get to Carnegie Hall - and without time to practice - we bought tickets for the evening symphony. Our seats were in the Dress Circle - not quite nose bleeds but high enough that one of us (ok - me!) with a pinched C6 nerve root would have trouble looking down and to the right. Medical... More

Carnegie Hall. You deserve it. Seating on the first tier is as close to perfection as I an imagine. The performance was outstanding, but the visit to Carnegie Hall was an experience in itself. The box seat of the first tier center has an outer door that opens into an intimate vestibule for hanging coats and a full-length mirror. A... More

We happened upon this tour by chance. We happened to be in the area just before the tour started and we just joined in. The representative who took us around was a lovely old man who knew everything about the place. The tour was a perfect length with just enough time at each place to take photos and ask questions....

Excellent and very informative docent-led tour of an iconic New York treasure. As no concerts were offered that night, we opted for a tour and appreciated the information shared about its fabled history and grandeur. Hope to return and attend a concert next time.

Carnegie Hall does not turn your attention for the first moment from outside, but inside it is a real treasure. Old fashion of decoration creates special atmosphere. Repertoire of the concerts is the best you can expect.

We were here to listen to my 17 year old niece perform with the Children's Music Festival. It is beautiful and historic. All the seats were great even up high where we were you could hear and see.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
