Animals

Service Animals
Service animals are permitted at Radio City Music Hall.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a service animal as any dog, such as a guide dog or signal dog that is individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability.  This includes psychiatric service animals that are individually trained to provide service to individuals with psychiatric or neurological disabilities, such as preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors.  Service animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered at all times, unless special circumstances exist, and will be required to rest in the seating area of the individual with a disability, rather than in the aisle.  A guest whose service animal poses a threat to the safety of other guests and employees, or whose animal is not housebroken, may be asked to escort the animal off the premises.

If you are an individual bringing a service animal, we strongly recommend that you contact Radio City Music Hall’s Disabled Services Department to request a photo ID for your animal, which will help to expedite entry and access.   Please click here to request your Animal Access Card.

Emotional Support Animals
An emotional support animal may only be used at our facilities by persons with a diagnosed mental or emotional disorder.  While the animal may or may not have specific training for that function, it must be trained to behave appropriately in a public setting.   Animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered at all times, unless special circumstances exist, and will be required to rest in the seating area of the individual who brought the animal, rather than in the aisle.  A guest whose animal poses a threat to the safety of other guests and employees, or whose animal is not housebroken, may be asked to escort the animal off the premises.

If you are an individual seeking to bring an emotional support animal, you must contact Radio City Music Hall’s Disabled Services Department to apply for a photo ID for your animal at least 48 hours before the scheduled event.  Please click here to request your Animal Access Card.  

To be granted an animal access card, you must provide documentation on letterhead (dated within 1 year of the scheduled event) from a licensed mental health professional (psychiatrist, psychologist or licensed clinical social worker) or a medical doctor specifically treating your mental or emotional disability.  That letter must include the following:

  • The patron has a mental health-related disability recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – Fourth Edition (DSM IV).
  • The animal accompanying the patron is necessary to the patron’s mental health or treatment, and the task the animal performs.
  • The individual providing the assessment of the patron is a licensed mental health professional and the patron is under his or her professional care.
  • The mental health professional’s license number OR the type of license, the issue date and the state or other jurisdiction in which it was issued.

Verification of the document will include Radio City Music Hall’s Disabled Services Department contacting your mental health care professional to authenticate the documentation.  If we are unable to validate the documentation, or if the advance notification is not provided, the animal will not be permitted in the facility.

History of Radio City Music Hall

Radio City Music Hall opened its doors on December 27, 1932 and has been visited by over 300 million visitors from around the world. Radio City is a major tourist attraction in New York City, and was granted official landmark status in 1978. In 1999, Radio City underwent its most extensive restoration project since its opening. It took over $70 million dollars, but when the restoration was finished, all the seats, carpeting, and wallpaper had been replaced, murals restored and technical elements enhanced. The restoration brought back the ambiance of the 1930's along with the integration of today's technology.
