It's an old classic theater hall, Certainly one of the staples of tourist heaven around town. Some of the seating is a bit tight for sure, and definitely watch your limited view seats. The sound is decent, and the place is fairly due for some...More

I'va passed Carnegie Hall with awe numerous times, but never ever set foot inside. On a recent trip to New York, however, I checked out what was playing, and lo and behold, the night before flying back to Europe the Philadelphia Symphonic Orchestra was giving...More

Nothing beautiful here. Very common. Acoustics actually poor. Some very rude staff. These are people with their noses in the air and heads in the air . Clueless!

In April, I got to achieve my lifelong dream. I got to perform on stage at Carnegie Hall. I could feel the presence of all the great people who have performed on the stage before me. It was such an emotional, indescribable experience. The staff...More

It was a cold day in NY and we were looking for something fun and interesting to do while staying warm. This was a very interesting tour, only wish they would have brought us back stage.

After 70 performances at Carnegie Hall, over 43 years, I'm convinced that it is the premier concert hall in New York, perhaps in America. Great sound and great performance experience. With 2 more bookings still there for 2017, the thrill and excitement never fail to...More

We came to see the Django music festival, and it was awesome. I would caution people to make sure they look carefully at the seating chart. When it says "blocked view" or "limited leg room" please take this seriously. My husband sat sideways the entire...More

Our son was playing his bassoon with the NYO so he traveled from Oregon to watch. The hall is beautiful but somewhat dated as most of the places around Manhattan are. The sound was wonderful and an experience none of us will soon forget.

What a beautiful place, happened upon it on my way to Central Park. What an architectural beauty. Will definitely have to go for a show next time I'm in town.

Went to hear my niece sing. What a beautiful venue. The only complaint is the elevator is really slow.

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

The sound is going to be awesome wherever you sit so unless you just enjoy watching people play instruments I'd go for the side balcony. It is somewhat more roomy in the front row and the chairs are much more comfortable.
