Choral Festival At Carnegie Hall + Giveaway

This contest has officially ended.  A huge New York thank you to all who participated, and congrats to our winners, Elise and Shayla!  Stay tuned for more exciting UsedYorkCity.com giveaways!

New York City is no stranger to beautiful buildings.  From Rockefeller to the Flatiron to the Empire State, architecture is truly one of our great city’s strong suits.  One of my favorite buildings on the inside, however, is none other than the illustrious Carnegie Hall.

 

 

Being a member of any show at Carnegie is truly something magical.  That’s why we’re delighted to be partnering with the fabulous institution and offering you tickets to be part of the audience at the choral festival “The Sounds of War and Peace“, happening over Martin Luther King weekend.  A pair of tickets (and fabulous swag bags!) will be given away for each show:

    It’s hard to choose just one building that exemplifies how beautiful NYC architecture is! One building I could never ever get sick of is the Empire State Building…I’m probably the only city resident who still freaks out over the view.

  3. Shayla says:

    Radio City Music hall has such rich history. I love seeing traveling shows and even the Rockettes there! It’s an oldie but goodie!

    • Used York City says:

      Radio City is the first NYC theater I ever went to! Totally solidified my decision to move to New York:-)

  4. Can I choose Bethesda Terrace? I’m kind of obsessed with the ground level and its surroundings!

  5. A partnership with Carnegie Hall? Now that’s what I call impressive, Jess & Co.

    I would love to visit and I imagine any show/musical genre is a marvel at the Carnegie.

    Good luck to all!
    I’ll be with you in virtual spirit :).

    Happy New Year.

    Happy New Year, Jess! :) Inside Carnegie Hall looks stunning. Grand Central Station comes to my mind when I think of NY architecture.

  7. Carnegie Hall looks stunning – and yes, I do remember the fabulous buildings in NYC. I remember walking around with a crick in my neck!

    Good luck to everyone – a fabulous prize!

    I would have to say the Guggenheim would have to be one of the many great sights in NYC. I think tourists have more fun taking photos of the architecture than they do looking at the art inside.

  9. Dwight says:

    Love the decor on lots of the NYC restaurants…like outside of 21 Club.

  10. Claire says:

    I’m moving to the area the weekend before MLK day so I don’t really have a favorite building that isn’t cliche. I guess for the outside I’d have to go with the iconic Chrysler Tower.

    • Used York City says:

      Welcome to NYC! You’re in for an amazing city! And you definitely can’t go wrong with the Chrysler:-)
