Came to hear the choir during the Thanksgiving holiday. Excellent acoustic and the sight line was good even though we got the cheaper seats to the side of the orchestra.

Classic venue with such character and charm. Truly unique! If you get seats in balcony, however plan to climb A TON of steps! Elevators are available but crowded.

Highlight was the Ligeti, Metamorphoses Nocturnes. Brilliant team of musicians, faultlessly synchronised. Hall is intimate, with great acoustics and plenty of legroom (unlike parts of the main hall). Memorable evening. Aiming for the repeat performance in Wigmore Hall on 7 January.

You can go to the ticket window at the venue. No fees, and they sometimes offer seats with less than perfect views (not available online) for cheap.

We like Applejack Diner, 1725 Broadway. Not fancy, but delicious home cooking and great service.
