Hammerstein Ballroom has been around a while and has a really cool energy to it. It's definitely a standing room only place, although the 1st and second balconies offer seating, if you choose that option. It's a very cool old place that has some mojo...More

This is an old venue near Penn Station. General admission tickets mean standing room only. Not a comfortable venue. Use the bathroom elsewhere, you will lose your spot.

We saw As It Is, Waterparks, and 2 other bands. Great small venue so that everyone is up close. Sound is very good. Bar is accessible, even during the show. Will go again for the right band.

It's an acceptable venue for concerts. If you want up front, you're standing through the start-up bands to the main concert. Could be hours. Going for a drink or restroom would lose you your early place near the front. Not an easy place to do...More

Went here a wrestling show because I always wanted to with the history of this place, it was well worth it! If you are a wrestling fan, or a fan of great venues, come here to see a show!

Went to see Tarkan. Had floor tickets, standing room only. Got a little squeezed towards the end of the show. Absolutely beautiful inside, great security and staff

Yes, you can choose whatever seat you want in whatever row. Just keep in mind that if you get up to use the bathroom or get a drink or something else, and someone is not around to keep your seat, you could lose it.

It all depends on the music and the kind of crowd it draws as to whether it’s ‘crazy’. Don’t know how the wait time on the line outside will be for your event either. If you want up front you need to go earlier.
