Standing more than 1,100 feet in the air and extending 65 feet outward from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards, edge is set to be the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere, and the fifth highest in the entire world.

Offering unique views of the New York City skyline and Hudson River, edge will feature a viewing area surrounded by a nine-foot high glass wall. A 60-second elevator ride will bring guests to edge’s 7,500-square-foot outdoor viewing area that includes a glass floor offering a birds-eye view of the city below.

Programming is slated to include a signature 10,000-square-foot restaurant, bar and event space, offering a one-of-a-kind social and dining experience for visitors, residents and employees.

Jason Horkin, executive director of Hudson Yards Experiences, notes, “Edge invites visitors to walk out into the sky and embrace unobstructed, panoramic views of New York City like never before. The name reflects both the unique structural design, which pierces the sky when observed from below, and the exhilarating feeling of being on the brink of something exceptional—exactly where you are on edge.”

Edge has begun accepting group bookings for events for the first quarter of 2020 and is expected to open early 2020.
