The highest observation deck in the Western Hemisphere opens in New York City

The highest observation deck in the Western Hemisphere opens in New York City

Opening its doors on 11 March, Edge is cantilevered on top of one of a Hudson Yard skyscraper and 100 stories up in the air.

Edge, the Western Hemisphere’s highest outdoor sky deck, has officially opened to the public, offering unparalleled 360-degree views of the iconic New York City skyline. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and extending out 24 metres from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards, the monumental triangular form redefines the New York skyline.

Edge’s outdoor viewing area Featuring a thrilling glass-floor, angled glass walls, and outdoor skyline steps from the 100th to 101st floors of 30 Hudson Yards, Edge’s outdoor viewing area is not for the faint of heart. Visitors can also experience the immersive, multi-room ‘Journey to Edge’ show, which tells the history of New York City’s newest neighbourhood from construction over an active rail yard to sustainability achievements and more.

To mark the opening, Edge has also launched a nightly light show designed by L’Observatoire International which will run from sunset to midnight daily through 4 April.

A bar, located on the 100th floor, offers a glass of champagne or signature cocktail and light bites to enjoy indoors or outdoors on the sky deck. Situated one floor above Edge, on the 101st floor, is Peak – a stunning restaurant, bar and event space operated by hospitality group RHC.

Edge is now open seven days a week year-round from 8am to midnight.
