A new milestone has been reached for New York’s largest new development. The highest public outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere has begun to take shape near the peak of 30 Hudson Yards.

As the largest planned development in the United States inches closer to completion, The Shed at Hudson Yards has announced the first group of commissions to be on display during the 2019 inaugural season.
