Firstly attended a Rangers game and really enjoyed the game, although the refreshments were quite expensive. Then a couple of days later we did the tour and found it really enjoyable and informative having seen an event.

First time at MSG. Came to NYC as Canucks were visiting. Fantastic Arena, well organized as all US Arenas are. Location makes MSG that touch more special. Shame the Canucks couldn’t get the result to complete the trip! 🤣 🏒

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

There was security line before you gave tickets for concert, Gotta believe the same is true for a knicks game. Line for us took 1/2 hour. Give yourself plenty of time,,,,better to be early than late.

We saw show number 101. There was an encore, there was a guest performer, and all of the songs that evening were great.
