NYC: Edge Observation Deck Admission Ticket

1. NYC: Edge Observation Deck Admission Ticket

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.

Very nice area with lots of shopping while you wait. Great view. I recommend going in the evening and waiting until nighttime. It’s two completely different experiences day vs night.

Great view from the platform. I particularly liked the glass floor on the platform. This means a super cool view of New York.

You have to look at it, really great experience. I can only recommend.

Excellent option to find the tourist places you want to visit.
