Hudson Yards announced that both Vessel and Edge reopen today. The 150-foot-tall climbable public art piece and the observation deck that’s 1,100 feet in the air (the highest in the Western Hemisphere) have been closed since March, only two days after Edge officially opened to the public. Both attractions will operate at 25 percent capacity and have numerous health and social distancing protocols in place.

Hudson Yards developer Related Companies worked with the Mount Sinai Health System on the best practices for safely reopening.

  • Social-distancing markers on the floor and one-way travel
  • Face coverings required
