I've been there many, many times and always thought it was a very nice venue. There is plenty of parking as long as you are willing to pay which is rather pricey.

I went there to watch a show and was surprised how easy it was to park (across the street) The building is clean and spacious and the seats were comfortable. Pleasant experience!

NJPAC is one of the best venues in the Northeast for plays, musical performances and just about any visual/musical performance. The acoustics are perfect, as are the sight lines. Parking is close and reasonable. The area is very safe.

This place is so nice inside! The seats are comfortable and the auditorium is huge. It is in a good location, as there are a bunch of places to catch a meal before the show!

I like the location of the NJ Performing Arts Center and it has a food area, but more important they host several free outdoor events including the Rhythm Review dance party .

W have been regulars at NJ PAC for years. It is a singularly spectacular venue for the arts. It rivals Lincoln Center for sound. You will love it.

Attended a Christmas concert (Handel’s Messiah)— great show! Used ParkWhiz to purchase parking in advance, and parked underground at War Memorial lot across the street from the PAC. Very convenient and brightly lit. The PAC is a lovely venue and, as other reviewers wrote, it...More

Don't go any higher than tier 1, I personally only do box seat depending on what your going to see grand tier is good but if it's a concert not so good as people stand in front of you and you can't see when they do.
