Discount ticket booth in New York brightens look

October 26, 2008|times staff and wire reports

The TKTS booth in New York's Times Square has reopened in its old location with a new updated look that fits in with its neon-bright neighborhood, as well as a new policy of accepting credit cards. The new booth, which sits on a traffic island at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue at 46th Street, is a fiberglass shell encased by a glass structure that sits under a glowing red glass staircase. The Theatre Development Fund says the pedestrian space of the once-crowded island has been updated and enlarged. Hundreds of tourists and New Yorkers line up at the booth daily to buy same-day tickets to Broadway and off-Broadway shows for up to half off the price.
