  • It was very spectacular. I saw pictures of fighting from Ali, very important matches in history, concert... bad thing is that the Pavilion did not work well La Luz and we could not see a set of lights that make. I sat in seat no. 1 in Stadium. Recommended

  • I couldn't help notice walking around this older sports arena that it does not seem older. They have done great things to update the walk areas and have a ton of great places to eat. We ate at the Mom...  more »
  • We went to see Chicago Bulls Knicks, and I can tell, was one of the highlights of the trip. The place is modern, and comfortable seating. We love!

  • One the of the key places you just have to go to when in New York. I was expecting bug queues going in but they manage it really well so we got through in no time. Everyone working there was so helpful and friendly. We seen a basketball game which was cool and the entertainment throughout was also amazing. The only downside was that food and drinks were quite expensive but overall it was a brilliant experience.
  • We visited there to see Elf the musical for the holidays. Seating is expansive and there are no terrible seats. Wonderful concession stand though a bit pricey but I would do it again and again. Nice people and kind to children which is very important.
  • This venue is amazing. There is so much room for people. We went to a phish concert here 2 nights in a row, one of the nights being new Years and we were not disappointed. The rest rooms and service center are in very convenient locations all around the venue easy to locate. We had a great time and an easy time getting in and out. Awesome place!
  • A must see in New York however great acts and sports. Staff were super helpful professional and friendly. However drinks and food were extremely expensive. You expect in a closed Venus to pay over the normal prices but a can of beer was $12 dollars which even in an expensive convenience store is maybe $2 its a bit of a premium. Really clean, tidy and well looked after venue with great staff so it depends on what you are willing to pay for.
  • Great venue- clean organized well, staff friendly and hard working. Exciting to be at this legendary venue! Saw hockey game, Cornell beat Boston University! Tried the Madison Mule cocktail, delicious! Super fun experience! Would love to go there for events again when I visit NYC. Love their displays of history of events too!
