Very nice center, saw a comedy show there and it was great. Parking was coordinated by New Jersey's finest good job. The area had lots of places to eat, very nice atmosphere.

The NJ pac is an excellent venue for top performances. Every seat in the house is rather adequate No need to spring for big bucks. The restaurant serves a nice assortment of food. Easy accessibility to the parkways

Don't go any higher than tier 1, I personally only do box seat depending on what your going to see grand tier is good but if it's a concert not so good as people stand in front of you and you can't see when they do.
