Hudson Yards announced earlier this week that Edge, the Western Hemisphere’s highest outdoor observation deck, is set to open on March 11, 2020 offering the public the opportunity to see and experience NYC like they never have before. This structure pierces the sky at a soaring 100 floors from its record-setting height of 1,131 feet, with expansive views of The City, Western New Jersey and New York State spanning up to 80 miles. Visitors will be able to enjoy varying levels of thrill including leaning over the city up against the angled glass walls to stepping all the way out onto the glass floor or taking in the view on the outdoor skyline steps from the 100th to 101st floor.

Edge is slated to be open seven days a week year-round from 8:00 AM to midnight, and general admission adult tickets cost $36 purchased online or $38 on-site. New York City residents get a slight discount and can buy adult tickets online for $34. There are also special rates available for seniors, active and retired members of the U.S. military as well as groups.
You’ve never experienced New York like this before. Stepping onto Edge is like walking out into the sky. The entire experience is designed to inspire visitors and ignite a new passion for New York City with multiple, built-in thrill elements that ensure Edge becomes a must-see local attraction and a top spot on every travelers’ bucket list,” said Jason Horkin, Executive Director of Hudson Yards Experiences.
