The TKTS Discount Booths have become an international destination for theatre lovers from the United States and around the world since 1973. There are four locations in New York City:
(1) Times Square – Broadway and 47th Street, Manhattan - "under the red steps";
(2) Lincoln Center – in the David Rubenstein Atrium at 61 West 62nd Street;
(3) South Street Seaport – in the Seaport Marketplace at the corner of Front and John Streets, Manhattan; and
(4) Downtown Brooklyn – in 1 MetroTech Center, at the corner of Jay Street and Myrtle Avenue Promenade, Brooklyn.

The Official TKTS app is offered exclusively by Theatre Development Fund (TDF), the not-for-profit service organization for the performing arts, which operates the TKTS Discount Booths.
