Take the 2 or 3 train located just one block from The New Yorker Hotel, on 34th Street and 7th Avenue going downtown to Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center.
But the excitement doesn’t stop there. On March 3, Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz will finally face each other in what is expected to be a thrilling bloodbath between these top heavyweight champions. Last but certainly not least, Demi Lovato & DJ Khaled will pay a visit to New York City on March 16 as part of their international tour, with special guest Kehlani (subject to change).
Known for its superb technology and astounding acoustics, the Manhattan Center never disappoints. On March 12, A Day To Remember will rock The Hammerstein as part of their 15 Years in the Making Tour. And the past few years have indeed been a rollercoaster for ADTR, originally from Florida. After all, one doesn’t get to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Rock, Indie and/or Alternative charts for nothing!
The Manhattan Center and The New Yorker Hotel have a long history together - we’re, literally, next door. Get your tickets, book your room with us and why not enjoy a nightcap after the show in Butcher & Banker.
