I did the tour here and I wasn't expecting much. I just did it as I have a New York Pass and so it was included. I actually really enjoyed it though and would recon=mend it to anyone especially if you are a live sports or music far. It's a magical building with a rich history.

My most favorite venue for concerts! Centrally located in the middle of Manhattan, if you love rock music, you're in for an acoustic treat! A must-go-to while in NYC!

The only good things going for Madison Square Garden are convenience and fame. It's a miserable concert venue with bad acoustics and infrastructure that can't really accommodate the crowd. It does attract great shows but anything near Penn Station is hell.

MSG, the Mecca of all concert halls. Nothing gets better or bigger than this.

MSG, or simple the Garden, is the oldest sports arena in NYC. It sits atop Penn Station and is home to the Knicks and the Rangers. All major concert tours stop here; Billy Joel even has a monthly residency here. The sound in the arena is great. It would even be one of the better larger venues to see a concert if it weren't for the tight hallways and the chaos that always follows when everyone tries to exit after a show.

I came here with my boyfriend to watch the Knicks game. The food is very expensive and not that great. I guess you're paying for the atmosphere. Also, you can only buy 1 drink at a time and they stop serving alcohol after half time is over.

This is where every New Yorker wants to watch a basketball game or a hockey game, be it between high schools, colleges or pros.

I love Madison Square Garden! What a staple for New York. If you've never been you should definitely at least buy a cheap ticket to an event to just check out the spot and newly renovations!

A bit long in the tooth, but still a great place to watch the Knicks lose or to catch a concert. With a subway station, directly below, it's a breeze to get to.

Nice venue for a concert, not as big as other basketball arenas I've been to! Anywhere in the building you have a good seat! It is very organized and the staff get you in and out without a hassle. When the shows over, you're in the heart of NYC!!
