New York will soon have “the edge” when it comes to magnificent outdoor observation decks.
Already home to some of the most famous viewing spots in the world, the Big Apple is about to add another to its impressive collection.
Named Edge, the upcoming Hudson Yards observation deck is set to open next year, with incomparable views of the city skyline.
Standing at more than 1,100 feet, Edge will be the tallest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere and the fifth highest in the world.
After hopping on an elevator for 60 seconds, visitors will arrive at the 7,500-square-foot outdoor viewing area, which extends 65 feet from the 100th floor of the new 30 Hudson Yards tower and includes a glass floor, offering visitors a bird’s-eye view of the city.
Edge also holds a signature 10,000-square-foot restaurant as well as a bar and event space.
While a launch date hasn’t been announced as yet, group bookings are opened for the first quarter of 2020.
“Edge invites visitors to walk out into the sky and embrace unobstructed, panoramic views of New York City like never before,” says Jason Horkin, executive director of Hudson Yards Experiences.
