A NYC Landmark

We were fortunate enough to see Billy Joel. What a phenomenal concert. He plays at the Garden several times a year so check for dates during your travel schedule.

Visited MSG twice this past week. Once to see a Rangers game and once to see a Billy Joel concert. Hockey game was a lot of fun (despite a few dick-ish fans, but you get that anywhere). We were in section 208, but view of the ice surface was great. Easy entrance before the game and easy exit after. All... More

It was very cool as a hardcore sports fan to visit one of the most well known venues in the NHL and NBA. We watched a Knicks game but took some time to walk around and look at the memorabilia located there as well. There is a very cool Gretzky presentation on one of the walls on the 100 level.... More

Went for Knicks basketball, Rangers hockey, and Billy Joel concert. The Garden is more accessible than Barclays Centre, but I prefer the view from the club room at Barclays.

A great venue in all respects. Easy to get to, easy to access, clear signage, helpful friendly stewards and a really good variety of tasty food in the food hall. Billy Joel was doing an extra date due to a cancellation earlier in the year. Great atmosphere and appreciative audience. Buy any souvenirs on the night since they will not... More

I heard horror stories on the web about how expensive it was at a game to buy a beer. While $12USD is not cheap, its decent draft and a full 24oz. When you factor that in, it's probably the cheapest place to drink in Manhattan. The recent renos are great, lots of washrooms, if one is lined up, keep walking... More

Quality seats for a Knicks game and very reasonable price (~100 dollars). Row 4 in this section are front row due to an access section being in front of this. Perfect view as nothing in front can get in the way when at this row. Seats are very comfortable and entering MSG is a breeze.

Its not just the Garden itself but all the shops and restaurants in the lower floors that makes this NYC destination a must see

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’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 neighbourhood 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.
