Spend Your Day Off at Hudson Yards and These Nearby Destinations

There’s so much to explore with Hudson Yards as your central destination point.

Living or working at Hudson Yards puts you in the middle of so much that you may not notice what awaits you at and nearby the neighborhood. Here are some exciting options easily accessible by Hudson Yards for when you have free time to spend.


Start off with your Hudson Yards bucket list: Fuel up for your adventures with a bite from Mercado Little Spain or Ana Bar & Eatery. Be your best self after a mani-pedi at sundays Nail Salon or a haircut and shave at Fellow Barber.   Or, refresh your wardrobe, with a new suit from Suitsupply, a fun purse from Kate Spade or some cool merch from Beyond the Edge after a visit to catch the breathtaking views from Edge itself.

Wander the waterfront: Hudson River Park, right across the West Side Highway and accessible by Hudson Yards, spans four miles, from Battery Park to 59th Street. Take a CitiBike on the bike path, stroll by the renovated piers or get off the trail long enough to go kayaking, or to take a sailboat or hand-built boat ride.

Walk to the Whitney (via the High Line): As you stroll down New York’s famous elevated park—which can be entered right by 10 Hudson Yards — you’ll pass native plants, public art and places along the way to stop and people watch for a while. At the southern terminus, the Whitney Museum of American Art awaits. Its eight floors of twentieth-century and contemporary American art remains unmatched.

Check out Moynihan Train Hall: A recently opened High Line extension drops you at the city’s newest and grandest civic icon. The fully renovated 1912 James A. Farley Post Office—the distinguished sister building to the original Pennsylvania Station—includes an airy atrium, a grand skylight, public art, a modern timepiece and plenty of gathering options.  

All of it is now easily accessible via the Highline extension that connects a leisurely walking path from the Moynihan Train Hall to Hudson Yards.
