Weather Considerations At This Booth

Depending on how long the line is (Usually its quite short at the Seaport) the line for this ticket booth is inside a lobby, so the the red shirt representatives will let you stand inside in extreme hot and cold weather. If it rains, they will cram in as many people as they can. The ticket office lobby inside can accommodate about 25 people, so its always wise to go there in off-peak times, if you want to wait in the comfort of a climate controlled area, that is protected from the elements.

Due to its proximity to Wall Street and the rest of the financial area in downtown Manhattan, the South Street Seaport location is often crowded and difficult to find parking on the street. Making matters worse, the TKTS booth is actually on Front Street, which is a pedestrianized street, not allowing any vehicles in. In New York City, the subway is the ideal way to get around, but the South Street Seaport area does not have subway stations that far East and the nearest one is at Fulton Street, some 7 blocks away.
