Full description
Edge is a marvel of architecture, engineering, and technology, suspended in mid-air over 1100 feet above the ground, giving you the feeling of floating in the sky. With Edge's unique vantage point on the western side of Midtown Manhattan, take in the entire Manhattan skyline from 1 place—from the tip of Central Park down to the Statue of Liberty and beyond. Begin your journey on Level 4 of The Shops at Hudson Yards, where you will enter into an immersive multimedia experience explaining the design, construction, and sustainability of Hudson Yards. Then, head up over 1100 feet to the Observation Deck, and then 80 feet out into the air on the Outdoor Sky Deck. Here, frameless glass panels walls are boldly angled outwards to allow you to feel the thrill of leaning out over the edge with the busy city below. Next, stand on the glass floor and look over 100 stories straight down to the city streets below your feet. At Edge's furthest point, The Eastern Point, there's space for one person to stand alone, surrounded by glass, air, and sky—you will never have had a picture quite like it. The upper level also features the Skyline Steps, where you can look out over the top of the glass panels and past the edge of the deck. Have a seat and hang out in the sky with your friends and family, or head indoors and sip champagne or a signature cocktail at the Champagne Bar. When you leave be sure to visit Hudson Yards centerpiece, Vessel, or enjoy a bite to eat or shopping experience at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards.

I wasn’t expecting to be too impressed as these types of activities don’t usually faze me. I must say, I was pretty surprised by the view! The place wasn’t too crowded and had indoor seating as well, including a bar. I booked when it was about 20 minutes before sundown, so I got to see the phenomenal views during the day, sunset and night. There is no time limit so I just sat on the steps (like they have at Times Square) and enjoyed the moment. I would definitely recommend going to anyone!

The Edge was a great experience, but worth booking an early morning reservation to avoid crowds on the deck! The ticketing and security lines moved quickly, and they shuttle you through to a photo line and then the elevators zip you up to the 100th floor. You can spend as much time as you’d like on the observation deck (no time limits), and the views are amazing. We came on a sunny day, and I’d love to come back to see the city lit up at night!

A bit disorganized at the entrance; I had to check in at 7:50 pm. When I arrived I made a line that I didn't have to do because they let you in according to the time you left. I recommend that you arrive on time and enter with ID and proof of vaccination.
