  • Tour is excellent as they show you all around this amazing arena, inside changing rooms and all views from around the place. The guide gives lots of information about all the things that have happened...  more »

  • Aqui você deve comprar antecipadamente algum ticket para assistir à jogos como da NBA ou shows, local imperdível de se conhecer.

  • I am currently going around league watching my Winnipeg Jets play in every rink and we were very excited to see MSG. It is a gorgeous rink with great history, however they've added so many seats over years that some of them just plain suck now. One seat I sat in, I couldn't see either net... I had to lean forward to see net closest to me, and lean back to see further net, if your team scores and you jump up, you can only see part of the near zone.
  • Absolutely beautiful building, concerts are always playing, wrestling events are held here. You can catch Amtrak here to visit other states. Police everywhere but that doesn't mean not to be careful in and around the area. I was attacked by a homeless man insisting on money. But it can also be fun because you'll have a variety of homeless looking musicians trying to make a buck, some are pretty damn good.
  • Had the VIP tour during my last visit to New York City and I was totally impressed. The arena is insanely beautiful, and the new hall is the best place to get lost at. Delicious food, astonishing memorabilia and 366 jaw dropping highlights. Go Rangers!
  • By far one of the nicest stadiums I've ever been in. Pretty much every seat in the house has a great view. Some stadiums if people lean forward, you can no longer see the action, but the spacing at MSG is sublime. I've been in the nosebleeds and in boxes. No obstructions / limited views, so it's all around pretty great. Prices inside are obscene though. Do all your imbibing and chomping before entering the pearly gates.
  • Even the upper level seats have a reasonably good view. Security check point lines are often lengthy, so plan to arrive early. Ushers are pleasant and helpful.
