TKTS Booths

These are the new TKTS booths in Times Square where one can get same day tickets to various Broadway and Off-Broadway shows at a steep discount. The lines can be long but it may be worth the money because you can save as much as $50 off the regular priced ticket per person.

Notice the red colored glass roof above the ticket booths? Click here to see what the roof looks like from the other side of the building.

So have you ever climbed on top of a roof?

Somehow this looks more civilized and will perhaps also feel more orderly than the previous ticket windows. As I recall, the old structure and windows had a bit of a temporary feel about them.

I climb onto my roof every day to hang out my laundry! But, my roof is flat and there's an inside staircase leading up to it and a door and all, so it's not such an adventure!

We saw very a very long que leading up to this so we didn't go to see a show as due to Jet lag we kept falling asleep by 9pm! I have left you a message on one of your previous posts saying I was gutted I didn't get your message till was back in the UK! Still upset that didn't have email access for 3 days otherwise we would have met up!
But will definatly be back xxxx

Cool shots! I haven't seen those stairs in person yet. It's been a while since I've waited in that line for tickets. I guess it's a nicer experience now with the red stairs. (I don't think I've ever climbed on top of a roof!!)

Cool.... I haven't seen a Broadway show in at least a year.

It wasn't open when we were there in September but I'm looking forward to seeing it next may.
I don't do roofs-- I don't do anything higher than the 2nd step on a ladder. Sure, listen to me. My husband & I have to fix my Mom's roof next weekend. Wish us luck.

I think this new design is a great place for people to hang out. It must provide a fab view of Times Square.

That is a great photo. I really like all the relections in the glass.

If only I could attend a Broadway show ... even discount tickets are out of reach these days. At least there's still off-Broadway, though.
