We love One World Observatory just as much as the next tourist, but this about-to-open spot will take your crew to jaw-dropping new heights. Edge, the highest outdoor deck in the Western hemisphere, is opening at Hudson Yards New York. You’ll see the Manhattan skyline from a new point of view (above it!) 1,100 feet above the street. See a full panorama, give a brief wave to NJ and take a brave walk 65 feet out into the sky on the highest public balcony in New York. If you’re not (too) scared of heights, walk all the way to the nine-foot wall of angled glass that’ll let you lean over the city streets.
After you’ve snapped all your pics, take a ride up even higher to the 101st floor to grab a bite at a massive bar and resto.
You can also explore Vessel, an interactive art centerpiece to the Yard’s facility. Climb 154 flights of interconnecting stairs, and take on the vertical climb to see the Public Square and Gardens from unique angles and heights. Snark Park, a rotating exhibit installation space, and The Shed, an arts center located where the High Line meets Hudson Yards, are also so worth a visit.
Edge doesn’t have a public launch date just yet, but bookings are available for 2020, according to nj.com. The Hudson Yards complex opens on March 15. The facility is downtown in a spread between 10th and 11th Aves. along 34th St.
