Knicks/Yankees tickets

by markythesparky1

I will be visiting NY in April 2011 with my 2 children and would like to buy tickets for the theatre, basketball, baseball etc. However, the postage charges and service fees to the UK can be nearly as much as the tickets themselves. If I went to Madison SG or Yankees Stadium on the day of the match, do you think it is likely that I could pick up tickets before the match or do they usually sell out? Probably go on 4/12 Knicks v Bulls & 4/15 Yankees v Rangers

Thanks, Mark.

Hit and miss......many factors could come into play. weather(for the baseball game), how good the ALCS is this year(Yankees vs Rangers), etc. For the baseball game, it is early in the year so you will have a shot. Getting 4 seats together will be the challenge.
Since the Knicks signed Amar'e Stoudemire, the tickets will be a little more difficult to get(and they are always a hot tkt as they are the only game in town!) If yu are staying in the city, I would swing by MSG as soon as possible and try to get the tkts. Making a trek up to Skankee stadium is a little harder, but you can try. Also, ask the hotel where you aer staying what they can do...

It isn't necessary to have the physical tickets posted to you. It's easy to have tickets held at "Will Call." You then just stop by the box office window on your way into the arena/theater and pick them up, using the same credit card you purchased them with.

Of course, you can save all the fees by waiting until you get here. But then you risk not getting the same selection of seats, or being shut out entirely.

Maybe this could be an option for you....its a large business here in Canada and the USA also...ticket resales..

I know Fedex transatlantic shipment on a package of tickets would run you about $ 40.00 or so.maybe slightly higher..

Just a thought...

If you can get them from the box office at face value, you can pick them out at the will call office. Early in the season for baseball should be easy, but if the Rangers lose to yankees, even better. The basketball may be harder, but there always been scapers outside the Garden. You pay a little extra for that service. Cheers Tommy x

Thanks everyone for your help. I used StubHub in the end and had them posted directly to my US hotel. Worked out half the price of anyone else.

Travel Tips for New York City

Spamalot

by jm34bee

Spamalot is an excellent Broadway show. We bought our tickets the day before so Im sure we overpayed. We were in the top Balcony and with fees our tickets totalled to $80 each. This show has everything that a Broadway show needs such as singing, drama, comedy... This is definately one of the best Musicals I have seen!!

The 5 boroughs

by Nexus7

For those not familiar with the geography of New York, there are five boroughs. They are all distinctly unique from one another, but all within twnety minutes of eachother. Manhattan, The Bronx (on Manhattan Island/isthmus separted by the White River), Queens, Brooklyn (on long island) and Staten Island, or Richmond (on an island next to New Jersey. Since 1898 they've all been incorporated as New York City. But when folks say 'the city' they typically mean Manhattan. Anything outside of the five boroughs is a different city entirely with their own police and government. The only other place in the US this really exists is in Los Angeles to an extent, but not officially. Now within Manhattan alone there are other neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village, Battery Park, Tribeca, The upper East side, or west or lower. These refer to its location relative to Central Park. Now New York City bleeds over into the state of New Jersey and to an extent Connecticut as well by way of Stamford. But Where does the 'metro' area end? Everybody has a different opinion. On the New Jersey side it's one giant urban to suburban sprawl from the stateline of the Hudson River. People from New Jersey are often ridiculed as being second rate compared to the class of New York. Judge for yourself. Long Island is mostly suburban as soon as you cross the East River, some areas nice and some areas not so nice. But Brooklyn has its urban spots for sure with semi-tall buildings. It's going through a serious urban re-edification project as Manhattan becomes filled up and intolerably expensive. It's beginning to be a yuppie land. The advantage is it's a little safer these days. But like I said the five boroughs are subject to some difference of opinion. The feel of the international community

Where would I take someone...

by joopy86

Where would I take someone that has never been to New York before? Simply put, there are waaay too many to decide.

There are the usual touristy places - Fifth Avenue, Times Square, etc. Times Square is probably the busiest area in New York with the least number of real New Yorkers. There are plenty of bright flashy things to do, and this place is the best for family with teenagers. It's always noisy and crowded and raucous no matter how late you go.

For people with a genuine interest in true New York life, however, just hop on a bus and go around Manhattan. The Upper East side is a quiet and beautiful area rich in culture - Julliard and Lincoln Center is located there, as well as spacious, classy buildings with restaurants and stores. You can marvel at the beautiful architecture of the houses that line next to Central Park - and for Beatles fans, you can even see the gorgeous apartment that John Lennon once resided in.

Those wanting to experience some of the eclectic culture of New York will love the downtown area. SoHo is a mix of stores that sell anything from cheap trendy items to thousand dollar designer clothing. It is simply beautiful and the best place to go shopping without the burgeoise feel of Fifth Avenue. There are numerous of little boutiques to visit as well. The downtown area also boasts Chinatown and Little Italy, as well as the noteworthy South Street Seaport which offers a fantastic view of the shore.

Families with kids can go to the city's many museums, especially the Museum of Natural History. Sunny days can be spent outside among the many playgrounds of Central Park. The takeoff boatride to the Statue of Liberty is at downtown Battery Park, a place where local residents relax in its pristine grasses, sculptures, playground, and its proximity to the water.

There are numerous restaurants that have great dining and extremely afforable prices. But I'll get into that later.

New York City Tip

by LuckyJVT

One of my favorite places in New York is The Promenade in Brooklyn Heights. A little park that overlooks the East River , Manhattan and the South Street Seaport. Check it out just around the time the sun is setting.. Very nice..

Take the boat cruise around...

by gtoates

Take the boat cruise around Manhattan Island. Spectacular views of the city and an informative commentary. Real value for money. The whole New York experience was unforgettable there is so much to do. We spent 6 days there and it really was not enough time.
