You can tell this was built for sound, second to none. I was happy the staff was vigilant about addressing people with phones and cameras, that is so annoying during a show. Beautiful place

The New York Pass allowed a free pass to the Carnegie Hall tour, so we stopped by. I knew next to nothing about the building but our ole so-and-so tour guide quickly filled us in on the fascinating history and the architectural masterpiece that it is. A definite highlight of my visit to the big apple, as I also now... More

Came to watch my granddaughter play with her band. Loved the classic charm and truly appreciated how well it has been preserved. On the negative side, the ushers were rude! There was an usher that was chasing down people and chastising people for trying to take pictures of their children. We had been told by another usher we could take... More

We had tickets to Django a Gogo 2017. We upgraded our seats once we arrived and it was truly amazing. The staff were was extremely friendly and helpful. The building is in incredible condition for being a historic landmark in NYC. Just a wonderful experience.

What can I say. Carnegie Hall is the standard that all others are measured by. We had great seats in the orchestra to hear the St Petersburg philharmonic and it was a night we won't soon forget. The acoustics are superb as we can hear every note from every instrument. What a night. If you visit New York, make a... More

While practice, practice, practice would be a worthwhile way to get to this famous music venue, I'm glad that I could in by buying a ticket. It is still beautiful with great acoustics.

Attended to see my daughter perform with her choral group. Great venue. All seats appear to be good seats. No photography or recording. I wish they had opened with a short explanation for those who don't attend symphony type concerts. Until the conductor places their arms at their side you are not to applause. Some applauded in the middle of... More

As much as we have always associated Carnegie Hall with the pinnacle of the highest honors and recognition in the world of the classical music, our first time at Carnegie Hall was to see the brilliant French actor and stand-up comedian Gad Elmaleh. Very impressive interior, and a very spacious at that. Every tier has its separate buffet counter which... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
