Carnegie Hall

Location: 881 7th Ave, New York, NY 10019

How do you get to the Carnegie Hall? On a hop on hop off bus tour, of course! One of the most prestigious venues in the world for both classical as well as popular music, Carnegie Hall is a concert venue in Midtown Manhattan located at 881 7th Avenue, occupying the east side of 7th Avenue between West 56th Street and West 57th Street, two blocks south of Central Park.

Carnegie Hall has 3,671 seats, divided among its three auditoriums and presents about 250 performances each season. Its remarkable architectural design and incredible legacy has made Carnegie Hall a national historic landmark and vital cultural center. Before Andrew Carnegie commissioned him to build one, New York City architect William Burnet Tuthill had never designed a concert hall.

Clearly, his lack of experience was no detriment: not only did Tuthill conceive an elegant building, but his work also gave Carnegie Hall its legendary sound. When you get there, you may want to consider taking a tour. Carnegie Hall tours are offered from October through late June and public walk-in tours may be offered Monday through Saturday, subject to the Hall's performance and rehearsal schedule.
