It raises above 335 meters above the Hudson Yards, which is the most recent West Side Manhattan building, that serves many purposes for everyone that goes there. Join NYDA and discover everything!
Edge is the name of the highest outdoor sky deck in the western hemisphere, pretty ironic name don’t you think?! Despite its edgy characteristics, the view is absolutely worth the trip! Located on the 100th floor of the Hudson Yards, you’ll get an open plaza complete with a partial glass floor and angled glass walls.
This deck and/or plaza is designed to take the visitors out of their comfort zone, giving them space to partake on more than just a breathtaking view, but most importantly, a sensorial experience. This amazing architecture of this deck was the responsibility of KPF, along with the interior design of the prestigious Rockwell Group!
This stunning deck is accessed through the shops & restaurants of the Hudson Yards’ indoor shopping mall. Before entering, they’re able to get a first glimpse of the deck through a multimedia arrival experience, designed by LAB at Rockwell Group with a 52-second elevator ride, that brings visitors to the 700 square meters outdoor viewing area. It’s a wonderful experience, filled with surprises that you simply cannot miss.
Once you’re finally at the deck, you’re mesmerized by the most mesmerizing view of all time, and right in the heart of the city. Guests are dared to traverse a glass floor that offers a view of the city streets 100 stories below, as well as to lean against the deck’s 2.7-meter glass walls, which are angled outwards to maximize views.
There’s even a higher perspective that is offered from an outdoor stair and seating area, that allows guests to look out over the glass from a seated position. One level up, the 101st floor is home to a restaurant, bar, and event space. Don’t miss the chance to see the highest outdoor sky deck at the Hudson Yards!
