A never-lived-in-before luxury penthouse in Hudson Yards has been listed for $70,000/month, a record-breaking asking rent for the neighborhood. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom apartment is on the 87th floor of 15 Hudson Yards, a 914-foot-tall tower designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Measuring over 5,000 square feet, the unit is one of the largest residences in Hudson Yards. The massive apartment is the result of combining two units, 87C and 87D, which were purchased by the same private buyer pre-construction, combined, and renovated. The previous most expensive rental in the area was last asking $32,000/month.

If simply standing on the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere isn’t enough of a thrill, how about scaling the outside of a supertall skyscraper? On Tuesday, Edge, the 100th-floor sky deck that opened at 30 Hudson Yards last spring, debuted “City Climb,” a ticketed adventure that challenges visitors to cross a series of open-edged outdoor platforms and stairs along the top of the tower, which stands over 1,200 feet tall. When it officially opens on November 9, City Climb will become the highest external building climb in the world.

The 150-foot climbable sculpture in Hudson Yards may shut down permanently after a teenager jumped to his death from the structure on Thursday. Vessel, an interactive public art piece designed by Thomas Heatherwick that opened in 2019 as the centerpiece of the $25 billion development, temporarily closed in January after three suicides, reopening a few months later with a new “buddy system.” The death of a 14-year-old boy on Thursday marks the fourth suicide at Vessel in less than two years.
