Times Square

Whether you are searching for Cheap Tickets for the Empire State Building or looking for cheap tickets to Broadway, no visit to New York is complete without a trip to Times Square.  Love it or hate it, Times Square is the most popular destination for visitors to New York. Whilst Times Square remains the most popular location within New York, I’m assuming this is more down to its central location, next to Broadway, rather than any over-riding need to see Times Square.

However clearly the best time to see Times Square in all its glory is at night where you can literally feel the glow of lights as you approach the area.  For many, the true purpose of visiting this area is to pick up cheap tickets to top Broadway shows & we’ve more details below on how you can pick up cheap or even FREE tickets!

1. Cheap Tickets for Broadway Shows, (tkts Times Square)

A great way to  enjoy substantial savings off top Broadway shows is through the tkts discount booth.   Located with Times Square, tkts offers a range of cheap price tickets for both Broadway & off-Broadway shows. Simply turn up on the day, (the TKTS ticket booth is generally open from 3-8pm Monday to Saturday) & check out available shows & discounts. Ticket availability changes throughout the day so it can be worth keeping up to date by downloading the tkts app. Ticket price discounts range from 20-50% off standard ticket prices where you’ll be allocated the best available seats at the time of purchase.

2. FREE Theatre Tickets

If you are willing to volunteer your time, you can actually pick up FREE tickets to the theatre.  Become an usher for the evening and you can enjoy complimentary entry to off Broadway shows that can be an experience in itself.  We recently tried this out and you can find out how we got on and how to apply over in our Cheap Ticket Guide to Broadway/Off-Broadway Shows.

TOP TIP; why not explore The High Line and take on a new perspective on New York City in this FREE attraction!
