TKTS Times Square

TKTS Times Square

TKTS Times Square, Broadway and 47th Street, New York, NY 10036
(212) 912-9770

The red bleachers in the center of Times Square that always seem to have a crowd of people on it were not actually erected just to provide additional public seating. Its concept was the result of an international competition to redesign the TKTS booth. Offering Broadway and Off Broadway shows at a discounted rate for same day tickets, TKTS has become a staple to the theater district. With 12 windows and 2 lines (one strictly for plays and one for musicals on the opposite side), the wait can be incredibly long because in true NYC fashion, there are a lot of people queuing up for the same thing. As with most lines in New York, the earlier you get there, the better (your options and seat availability).
