Top ways to experience Carnegie Hall
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Carnegie Hall Tour
    Took the Carnegie Hall public tour in October 2023. Excellent value for the $20 cost. We attempted to purchase online, but was "over the limit" for online purchases. Was able to purchase in-person at the box office without problem, and without the $3 per ticket online fee. Tour went over the 60 minute estimate. Docent had extensive knowledge of the Hall and was pleased to share and answer questions. Special treat was a sound-check performance by Jens Lindemann, Canadian trumpeter. This was a complete surprise and the docent said it had never happened on any of her previous tours! A tour well worth the time and money!

    Entrances are Important
    Just went for a concert and had a great time! The acoustics are wonderful and almost all seats give a good view of the stage. Just make sure you arrive on time as it can take a while to climb all the stairs to get to your seats. Like an opera house, the seating and aisles are very narrow. As there are multiple entrances to multiple shows, make sure you ask which one is the correct one.

    Such an iconic building
    What a beautiful building on the outside, but inside is stunnng! Such a grandiose place, with a rich history of very famous performers from The Beatles to Led Zep, from Billy Joel to Stevie Ray Vaughan.......only the very best get to perform here. You can really appreciate the venue when you visit, it's steeped in history and the acoustics are simply stunning.

    A Concert Hall with a Glorious History.
    We were performing Mozart's Coronation mass in this venerable institution. There are no seats on the risers, which can be tough for some performers. Moreover we had zero ability to evaluate our sound, and make adjustments as needed. However, the audience seemed to like what we did. Later we sat in the back of the audience for a performance of the Beethoven 5th. From that perspective the sound was excellent. As old and venerable as it is, it's probably time for the Carnegie to undergo a fundamental refurbishment.

Carnegie Hall is such an iconic New York landmark, it warrants a visit, especially from anyone who truly appreciates live music. It is not hyperbole to say that its legendary acoustics guarantee a superb listening experience from anywhere in the house. I prefer balcony seats, which provide a rich sound experience at a reasonable ticket price. Be forewarned though, these rows were designed more than 100 years ago, when patrons were smaller, so they are a bit cramped. Also be aware that the two elevators do not go beyond the Dress Circle, so be prepared for a rather steep climb from there.

Very rude staff. Terrible seats - they were expensive yet so uncomfortable and the leg room was terribly inadequate that myself and partner had to leave midway through the performance. I never had a less enjoyable experience attending a classical music concert. This place was probably something back in its heyday but it is no longer a nice place to attend concerts. Best avoided.

They have organized tours separate from ticketed events. They also have gift shop hours to visit even if not touring or watching g a show.
