Residents line up for discounted Yankees tickets

Shoppers picking up pinstripe gear at the Times Square Modell's store are lining up to snag tickets to see the Yankees at a deep discount.

A new ticket booth inside the store is selling same-day home game tickets for 50 percent off.

The cheap tickets are only available at the Times Square location, which Modell's chose because nearly half a million people pass through it daily.
