I had to drop the tickets on the will call. I asked four different security people, and they all told me different directions. Try not to carry a backpack. They check you out at the airport.
I love the Garden. Every time I visit, I feel like I am stepping into a museum where some of the most influential people shared their talents with the world. Although people will be quick to point out that this is technically the third Garden, it's still iconic and celebrates the many various forms of talent that perform inside over the years. Its run by a very professional and efficient entertainment company. Yes, buying drinks or food here is expensive, but boy is it efficient. I enjoy visiting and I see myself coming here for years to come.
I had a great time at MSG. First time visitor to the venue. Accessible easily from subway. Going through security was a breeze. Ticket check went smooth. Easy to find seats. Helpful ushers. Food accessible from lower level seats
