REDISCOVER THE NEW HEART OF NEW YORK TODAY
Enjoy unique shopping, dining and experiences to explore. Stay connected and follow @HudsonYards for the latest updates.
Welcome back to Edge, where you’ll experience out-of-this-world views and top-of-the-line health measures.To ensure a safe, socially-distant experience for all visitors, Edge has worked with the Mount Sinai Health System to implement enhanced measures that include:
The Edge Bar will serve food and drinks outside for the safety of everyone as well, with menus available by QR code on your mobile device for a touchless experience. Visitors can read the full set of protocols here. In other words, visitors need not worry about anything but finding the best angle for their soaring selfie.
All visitors and employees will be required to wear face coverings. Complimentary face coverings will be available for those who require them.
The experience remains as awe-inspiring as always. The elevator, which takes you nearly 100 flights in less than a minute, caps a scene-setting immersive journey through the history of New York City and the creation of Hudson Yards. And that’s before you even step onto the cantilevered deck that juts 80 feet from the side of the building. The 360-degree panorama offers seemingly endless sightlines, and an unshakeable feeling of floating high above the city.
The design team created dozens of prototypes before landing on a non-reflective glass that ensures the best views. Each of the 79 nine-foot tall panels lean out 6.6 degrees, so it is even easier to look down from your perch 1,131 feet in the air. The 7,500-square-foot deck also features a 225-square-foot glass section in the floor, so intrepid explorers can get an unmatched peek straight down to 10th Avenue.
The construction story of Edge will drop some jaws, too. Made up of 15 interlocking sections, the deck was first put together offsite like a jigsaw puzzle before being broken down and reassembled in the air, anchored to the east and south sides of 30 Hudson Yards with 3,400 bolts. Inside, a giant pendulum with a 650-ton weight counteracts the building’s sway. Before transporting the pieces to their final home, engineers had to test the city’s streets to make sure they could handle the weight.
From the beginning, everyone involved in creating the unique experience that is Edge has thought of everything. That care continues now with its reopening.
