Hudson Yards has brought NYC families plenty of new attractions and ways to play—but another big development is still to come. Mark your calendars: Edge, the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere, is set to open on March 11, 2020 at Hudson Yards, and tickets are now on sale.

Situated on the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards, Edge's observation deck sits at 1,131 feet above street level—that's higher than both the Empire State Building's main observation deck and the Top of the Rock. Read on for details on how to visit.


Look 100 stories down from the thrilling glass floor and lean out over the city on angled glass walls.

Tickets for the opening month at Edge are available online now. Its soaring height and fresh-air views might be terrifying enough for some, but even the most daring of visitors will have their mettle tested by some of Edge's more daring features. While One World Observatory's Sky Portal provides the illusion of looking straight down to the street, a portion of The Edge's flooring is glass, giving you the opportunity to see a crystal clear view of city streets below...if you dare. Frameless, angled glass walls provide a barely-there illusion and allow you to lean out over the edge for the best view. The Skyline Steps are, likewise, walled in only by glass and take you to the 101st floor for a few extra feet of stunning views.

You'll feel like you're floating in the sky when you walk out on the Edge.

Boasting 360-degree views that span from New York harbor to New Jersey and straight up the Hudson Valley, the observation deck's riverside location means you'll be able to see up to 80 miles on a clear day In addition to the views, you can enjoy champagne and light bites from an on-site bar or book a table at Perk, the restaurant on the building's 101st Floor.

Edge will operate seven days a week from 8am to midnight. General admission tickets are $38 for adults and $31 for children. There is a $2 discount for booking online in advance and New York City residents are afforded a $4 discount.
