  • Saw Billy Joel 5/25. Fantastic concert - expect a mix of album tracks and big hits. He does a 7 song "encore", so worth noting if you're trying to get out and beat the crowd. MSG loses a star for the chaos of trying to exit - it takes forever and it's crowded and slow. Great venue with plenty of bathrooms though, and easy to navigate.
  • Went to see a Knicks game. On a nice day, not bad to walk to from Grand Central train station. Getting in was simple enough, not a huge wait. There were several lines to get everyone in quicker. Simple enough to find your seat too. Food and beverage are expensive of course. However, lines for food was a bit long and the bathroom line at half time was long too.
  • The tour was great. We saw Knicks locker room, Rangers locker room, the whole arena, the sky bridge, the theatre below and the ultra exclusive private club. I highly recommend it. Our tour guide Brian was hilarious and very knowledgeable. Thanks for a great tour Brian!
  • This tour was impressive. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The Garden is an awesome place to visit. I recommend going on a tour to get the full experience.
  • We have a great time hanging out at Club 31 during the game Saturday night. Big Rangers game 6, series clinching win. I love walking out with all the people exiting the arena and hearing all of the excitement of the win. GREAT place to hang out!
