New York City Madison Square Garden

If you are thinking of the best things to do in New York then consider checking out Madison Square Garden. Located on 4 Pennsylvania Plaza, in Midtown Manhattan, Madison Square Garden opened in 1968. Every year this big arena hosts over 300 events and many cultural activities with a capacity of hosting more than 20,000 people. It is certainly one of the top NYC attractions! But this was not the first Madison Square Garden that was built, the first two were in a different location and designed in a different style. Today it is the location of the New York Life Insurance Company Building.

If you like sports, Madison Square is the place to go. Book some tickets before and maybe you could enjoy a game at the arena. This is the home to the NHL New York Rangers and the NBA New York Knicks – if you are lucky enough, you could get to watch a game with one of those famous New York teams! It’s not the only sport event that happens here; this was the ground were Ali and Frazier’s famous fight took place. You will find yourself choosing between boxing competitions, and World Wrestling Entertainment. Or if you are a music lover, maybe you will be in time to participate in a pop concert or watch the circuses.

All these activities take place in the main Arena, but it is not the only place where events take place- you will be able to enjoy WaMu Theater and the Expo Center. Our tip? Check out the New York City pass offers and consider a free “all access” Tour, where you can enjoy all the features of the square for free!

This is Midtown Manhattan, which means you have many more things to do in NYC, for example, go to Macy’s Department store, and enjoy a unique shopping experience in one of New York’s best shops. Or maybe pay a visit to the famous Empire State Building and enjoy the view over the entire city.
