NYC & Company and ITTN present Hudson Yards – It’s Time for NYC

Hudson Yards – Edge & City Climb

Hudson Yards is New York’s newest neighbourhood on Manhattan’s West Side. It is home to 100+ shops and culinary experiences, public art and cultural institutions as well as 14 acres of public plazas, gardens and groves. Hudson Yards is also home to two premier attractions.

Edge – Hudson Yards

The first is Edge – the tallest outdoor observation deck in the western hemisphere. There is an indoor observation deck on floor 100 and a cantilever deck. This extends out over the edge by 20 meters so you can effectively step out “into the sky”. 

City Climb – Hudson Yards

City Climb is the latest offering from Hudson Yards. Strap on a harness and exit about five floors ABOVE Edge. Then climb up a 160-step staircase all the way up to the apex of the building and, if you dare, lean out over New York City a mere 1,200 feet above the ground. It boasts the accolade of being the tallest outdoor building climb in the world. It is also the highest public point a person can be in New York City.
