OneSongGlory saidSo I can be in NYC for one day tomorrow and I have no idea what to do. I wanted to do Broadway like I really wished I could have done, but I lack the funds. What are some cheap things to do within a decent walking distance of Grand Central Station?
There's a lottery system for tickets to Broadway shows at a really great price ($25 or so). You go to the theater a few hours before show time and stand in line and then go drop your name in a box and they draw names for the discounted tickets. You have to still be there if they draw your name so it is time consuming and since you're only there one day you probably don't want to waste your time. Enjoy yourself! I know you've been looking forward to this for a while.
I know the lottery system, I was a little confused by the details because I was reading that if you come like a few minutes before the show you get the discounted price as a way to sell out as fast as possible. I was thinking to give that a try, even if I get garbage seats I don't care. I really want to see Lion King.
The worse part was the sites lied to me, they had a thing saying "get tickets at $69" and I was like yes! Then I click and it's all sold out so only $200 tickets remain and I was like
Anyway I guess I could just wander about. Thanks Coach for the suggestion anyway
