Edge, Highest Outdoor Sky Deck in Western Hemisphere, prepares to Open in March

The new New York landmark will rise 1,100 feet above the Hudson to showcase the city’s iconic skyline

Edge, the Western Hemisphere's highest outdoor observation deck, will open to the public on March 11, 2020 offering some of the best views of New York City without having to sit in the window seat. New Yorkers and visitors will be able to see the city, as well as western New Jersey and New York State spanning up to 80 miles as they share champagne toasts amid the clouds.

Edge will be open seven days a week from 8:00 AM to midnight. General admission adult tickets are $36 purchased online and $38 purchased on-site. Child tickets are $31 purchased online and $33 on-site. New York Cityresidents can buy adult tickets online for $34.

A champagne bar, located on the 100th Floor, will offer a glass of champagne or signature cocktail and light bites to enjoy indoors or outdoors on the sky deck. The champagne bar will be operated by London-based rhubarb hospitality group. Rhubarb will also operate Peak, the restaurant, bar, café and event space located on the 101st Floor. Peak will serve lunch and dinner offering a one-of-a-kind dining and social experience.

"You've never experienced New York like this before," said Jason Horkin, Executive Director of Hudson Yards Experiences. "Stepping onto Edge is like walking out into the sky.”

Edge will be a major focal point of Hudson Yards, the 28-acre neighborhood on Manhattan's West Side that brings together fashion, dining and cultural experiences along with the headquarters of dozens of leading corporations, thousands of residences, 14 acres of public parks and open space and interactive public landmarks.
