The Today Show

We will be in New York City in August and we would like to vist the Today Show live. We are staying at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square. Could anyone tell us how early we would need to get there and the best way to go. Any other tips for securing a good view of things would be appreciated.
Thanks !

It depends on the day of the week. Fridays are concert days, so depending on the featured musical artist, people might begin lining up the night before. On a Friday morning, the place can be a madhouse, the entire plaza jam-packed with people. Other days, you can probably be pretty close if you arrive a little before it goes on the air at 7AM.

Where you are staying is not far away so the easiest way to get there would be to walk. Head down Broadway to 50th St and walk east toward 6th Ave and you will find the Plaza between 5th and 6th Aves.

Have a great time.

We went twice on our recent visit in June and had no problem getting to the front of the pack. We showed up around 9am the first day and 8:30 the second (I think). The hosts go in and out of the studio and every time they go inside the crowd thins out. Just make your way to the front then, and wait a few minutes for them to come back out. If you watch the camera and light men you can tell where they will set up next. Ann Curry talked to my daughter on the air and they zoomed the camera in on her while talking about hair colors.
