Hudson Yards has announced that Edge, the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere, will open to the public on March 11, 2020.
Starting today, Oct. 24, New Yorkers and visitors from around the world can purchase tickets to this new experience at the top of the city skyline. Resting at a record-setting height of 1,131 feet, Edge will offer views of New York City, Western New Jersey and New York State up to 80 miles. The Edge observation deck extends 80 feet out from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson yards, includes a 7,500-square-foot outdoor viewing area and is surrounded by 79 glass panels.
“You’ve never experienced New York like this before,” said Jason Horkin, executive director of Hudson Yards Experiences. “Stepping onto Edge is like walking out into the sky. The entire experience is designed to inspire visitors and ignite a new passion for New York City with multiple, build-in thrill elements that ensure Edge becomes a must-see local attraction and a top spot on every travelers’ bucket list.”
Edge will be open seven days a week, year-round, from 8 a.m. to midnight. General admission tickets for adults are $36 when purchased online and $38 on-site. For children, tickets are $31 when purchased online and $33 on-site. New York City residents can buy adult tickets online for $34. There are special rates for seniors, active and retired members of the U.S. military, and groups as well.
A champagne bar will be located on the 100th floor, offering a glass of champagne or a signature cocktail and light bites to enjoy indoors or outside on the sky deck. The bar will be operated by the London-based Rhubarb Hospitality Group, which will also operate Peak, the restaurant, bar, café and event space on the 101st floor.
