TKTS Ticket Booth at World Trade Center WTC
THE WTC TKTS LOCATION WAS DESTROYED IN 2001 DURING THE SEPTEMBER 11th ATTACKS. IT NO LONGER EXISTS
The TKTS booth at the World Trade Center originally opened in 1995 by the TDF. The World Trade Center TKTS was destroyed on September 11th 2001 when the South Tower building that the booth resided in was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks. No TDF employees were lost in the terrorist attack, as the attacks happened early in the day.
On the day of the attack one TDF employee was opening up the office at the time of the morning plane crashes and was able to escape unharmed.
The WTC booth was located on the mezzanine level of the 2 World Trade Center (The South Tower) and sold between 900-1,000 tickets a day and was open every day except Sunday. At its busiest time of the week, 4-6 employees would work at the WTC TKTS booth.
