Madison Square Garden Reviews
I have always wanted to see a basketball game in America and to visit Madison Square Gardens so two boxes ticked. I was quite disappointed that they forced the LGBT agenda on to the crowd with an... more »
I can't begin to tell you how amazing this place is. For a start its easy to get to, just follow the crowds - and there are thousands of them - even on a school night! Its just an iconic place too... more »
Perfect venue for a concert. Staff was extremely helpful and nice. Seats were incredible- sold out show and didn’t seem too crowded at all. Staff was all over offering to help and move people along. Everything was very clean! Food was surprisingly good and they had plenty of merchandise. They had escalators going up but after the show we had to walk down the stairs or wait for the elevator.
Great venue to see concerts as most seating has good views. If you're not super tall I recommend staying off the GA floor and go for tickets that are in sections 116 - 118 / 106 - 108, 210-212/ 223-225 for best views. Also good for NY Rangers hockey games. Sound is good except if you're far away or high up but that's a typical law of physics and sound travel. The only downsides are exorbitant prices on beer and snacks. Like $12 a beer I believe. Gouging! Tip: don't hang around when the show ends. Get to the nearest exit ASAP to avoid being stuck like cattle on the stairs. You'll still have a crowd but early birds suffer much less! I recommend this venue! P.S. ENTRANCE IS ON 7TH AVE BETWEEN 31ST & 33RD ST.
