No Lines at TKTS

This is the line to the new TKTS booths that sell discounted Broadway tickets for same day shows only. The reason there was is no line here is because this photo was taken at about 10 AM in the morning and it was really, really cold.

So when was the last time you waited in a line to purchase something?

Everywhere I go I wait in a line. IT's insane. I wear my IPOD now and just zone out. It's great. I"ve not had the urge to go buy a handgun in ages. It's very calming even though my daughters say I look like a "goober". At least my head doesn't blow off.

The last time was 3 weeks ago ,to see a free concert ,i was on the verge to give up because it was so crowdy ...but i was motivated and finally i could get in !!!

I hate waiting in line... I think I would prefer to get up early and face the ice rather than wait.

Despite the cold weather here, there have been lines all over the city since before Xmas! Have hardly ever seen so many tourists and never seen the queue to the "last minute" tickets as long!

I have postponed my shopping and museum visits!

Interesting. I never thought there could be such a place.

Thanks for posting! Today is 1/4/09 and our city -- of usually moderate temperatures -- is a refrigerator!

We've waited in that line many a time from the 1970s until now. We were in NYC in May-June 2006 and waited at the other location in almost 90 degree HEAT! That was while they were building that new kiosk.

Warm regards,

New Year's eve was the last time when I waited ... and waited ... and waited to be served at the cheese counter at Di Laurenti's Italian deli. I finally gave up and went to another cheese vendor at the Market. Presto! No line!

i always wonder how tkts booths work?

NEVER. i absolutely hate lines and refuse to wait on them unless i really have to. if i go to a restaurant and there's a line or a wait, i rather just go eat somewhere else. i don't find too many things that are worth waiting in line for.
