On the west side of Manhattan Island, you'll find one of the most amazing viewpoints in New York: The Edge. Only the most daring are able to step out onto the glass floor of this observatory situated 1,130 feet high!
Hudson Yards, in the heart of New York's West Side, is beginning to position itself as one of the city's upcoming neighborhoods. Thanks to recent attractions such as High Line Park, The Vessel, and The Edge, the area now attracts thousands of visitors a year.
The Edge is the newest skyscraper in New York, rising up 110 floors. The observation deck offers brilliant panoramic views of the city, an upstairs bar, and a dizzying glass floor.
Going up to The Edge viewpoint
The Edge is located on the banks of the Hudson River and houses an outdoor viewpoint that is perfect for admiring New York from all angles. The observation deck is located on the 100th floor, at an altitude of 1130 feet above sea level.
From the viewpoint of The Edge, you can see the skyline of Manhattan and, on the horizon, the iconic Central Park. Thanks to the exclusive location, The Edge offers unique views of Queens and Brooklyn, the western neighborhoods of New York.
The most exciting part of going up to The Edge's viewpoint is looking directly down at the city through the glass floor of the observation deck. The sloping glass walls surrounding the observation deck complete this unique experience in New York.
