Full description
Edge is a marvel of architecture, engineering, and technology, suspended in mid-air over 1100 feet above the ground, giving you the feeling of floating in the sky. With Edge's unique vantage point on the western side of Midtown Manhattan, it allows you to take in the entire Manhattan skyline from 1 place: from the tip of Central Park down to the Statue of Liberty and beyond. Choose between the General Admission Ticket that lets you visit Edge at a specific time on your chosen visit date, or the more flexible Flex Pass Ticket, which lets you visit at any time on your chosen visit date. Your journey begins on Level 4 of The Shops at Hudson Yards, where you will enter into an immersive multimedia experience explaining the design, construction, and sustainability of Hudson Yards. Then, head up over 1100 feet to the Observation Deck, and then 80 feet out into the air on the Outdoor Sky Deck. Here, frameless glass panels walls are boldly angled outwards to allow you to feel the thrill of leaning out over the edge with the busy city below. Then, stand on the glass floor and look over 100 storeys straight down to the city streets below your feet. At Edge's furthest point, The Eastern Point, there's space for one person to stand alone, surrounded by glass, air, and sky—you will never have had a picture quite like it. The upper level also features the Skyline Steps, where you can look out over the top of the glass panels and past the edge of the deck. Have a seat and hang out in the sky with your friends and family, or head indoors and sip champagne, or a signature cocktail at the Champagne Bar. When you leave be sure to visit Hudson Yards centerpiece, Vessel, or enjoy a bite to eat or shopping experience at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards.

Was an interesting experience. Very expensive for what it actually was but interesting to say the least. The wait was long. The views were beautiful. The walk to get to the deck was weird but interesting. The $32 photo we paid for was misprinted and the name of the attraction was not printed correctly. The ink was smudgey. (Sorry no other way to explain) the person who brought back didn't seem to think it was a problem and left before we could say anything. There were a lot of people coming out from the elevators so we just left and ate the fees. Other than that the trip was ok. Not a bad experience but def just a one time thing. Fun to do when there is nothing else to do with the family.

It is really inspiring to visit that viewpoint. It is spacious and every detail is well thought out. The view of the city is second to none. The transparent walls and floor make you feel part of the city. Your perfect bar. The store when leaving: beautiful. I highly recommend it. I would go again every time I visit New York. Being there disconnects you from everything. In addition, they do not limit the time you stay.
