Tickets are now on sale to visit “Edge” at Hudson Yards, the tallest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The observatory is perched 1,131 feet above ground and protrudes from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards.

The 7,500-square-foot outdoor viewing area is comprised of 15 sections, each weighing between 35,000 and 100,000 pounds. The deck cantilevers 80 feet out from the structure and carries a weight of 765,000 pounds. The floor is partially comprised of transparent, reinforced glass sturdy enough to support the weight of visiting patrons.

The 101st floor of the building looks out onto the edge and includes a 10,000-square-foot restaurant and event space managed by rhubarb, a hospitality group based in the United Kingdom.

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox for Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group, 30 Hudson Yards is located at the southwest corner of 33rd Street and Tenth Avenue. At 1,296 feet tall, the 2.6-million-square-foot tower offers some of the most impressive panoramic views of Manhattan and debuts as one of the tallest office buildings in the United States.

Guests lucky enough to nab tickets to Edge will have to wait until March 2020, when the observation deck opens to the public.

  1. Thanks to a reporter: Now I’m moving with my hands and eyes, which I mean; I am using these organs as the main body to read your details. I don’t have expertise like a designer, but at least I have to understand what you put it on.

  2. Does this tower really have 101 floors?

  3. I’m surprised you didn’t mention how much the tickets cost.
