Have been to a number of events at the Garden but nothing can beat the Knicks at the Garden. We sat on the floor and enjoyed the hospitality lounge and loved every minute of it!

An older layout for sure but watching the Knicks or hockey is a must see if you are visiting. Beware that ticket prices are not cheap! has some of the best food selection among stadiums. Easy to get to.

We went here for a hockey game, and it was amazing. The arena is fantastic and the food choices are phenomenal. I don't think there is a bad seat in the place. The next day we took a tour. If you have a couple of hours to spend I highly recommend it. Since the arena was dark that day, we... More

Really enjoyed our madison square garden experience! We had a lovely evening watching ice hockey, which was so easy to see, even from the top tier! The only issue is the cost of the tickets, which are steep, however this is expected, so it's fine.

Tour is excellent as they show you all around this amazing arena, inside changing rooms and all views from around the place. The guide gives lots of information about all the things that have happened at this great place.

It was my first time to New York and there was a game between Knicks and Hawks and I didn't want to miss it. I felt the euphoria and really enjoy the game although I don't actually like basketball. It gave me a new experience and I think this is one of the must do in New York.

a must see attraction while visting NYC! we visited it on a wet rainy day and they had spaces available for the tour of the arena which lasts about 1-2 hours so we decided its the best way to see what the arena had to offer behind all the scenes alongside visiting the two dressing rooms. If you get chance... More

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.
