The tour around 'The Garden' was very interesting and a great way to spend an hour or so. You get great views of the arena and also of the behind the scenes areas

I went to Madison Square Garden for Circus 1903 in April 2017. I'd never been to MSG before, and it was a bit magical to go to a place that was so famous. It was fun to look around. It really didn't have a circus atmosphere, but that's probably hard to re-create in one of the world's most intensely urban... More

If you're in NYC you MUST watch a basketball game, the crowd are wild the fans are even wilder and you leave feeling the buzz. The drinks of course are super expensive but I suppose that comes with the tourist hot spots.

Visited to see an NBA game and what a fantastic experience. Organisation left a lot to be desired but, once into the arena, it was a good experience - plenty of food and drink outlets covering all tastes plus souvenier shops. The seating is great wherever you are sat with a good view of the court/ice rink (for NHL games).... More

My husband and I visited Madison Square garden last December to watch the Rangers play ice hockey and we were not disappointed!! We'd booked to do the tour first which was worth the money as it really gets you excited to watch the game. We were worried that we had rubbish seats as there was a limited amount to choose... More

Although the Knicks have been a poor excuse for a pro team for the last few years, the Rangers, the college hoops and the occasional boxing match make this place great. An other than that stupid Skybridge that was built a few years ago, it's on of the prettiest arenas that I've visited - the ceiling is a unique architectural... More

With the most recent update the garden did a good job with the arena and the food court. It is still exciting to come to MSG either for a sporting event or a concert.

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.
