The Broadway Week presale ticket offer is one of a number of local benefits that AARP New York provides to help members have fun at a discount. It has been offered for the past five years, in partnership with NYC & Company.
During Broadway Week, AARP members can stop by the Official NYC Information Center-South Street Seaport from 3 to 4 p.m. each day to meet AARP staff, volunteers and other members, and to learn more about what the association is doing in their community. —Ronald E. Roel
