Not only has Hudson Yards officially named the observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards “Edge,” but they’ve opened a list to reserve a spot to step out onto the 1,100-foot-high platform when it opens in early 2020. Along with being the highest outdoor deck in the entire Western Hemisphere (and the fifth tallest in the world!), it juts out 65 feet from the building with a glass floor to peer at the city below. And as the Edge’s website says, “Go further and lean out over Manhattan, literally, on the nine-foot wall of boldly angled glass—if you dare.”
The 7,500-square-foot observation deck reached its full length and width nearly a year ago, and 30 Hudson Yards topped out at 1,296 feet in July. The 90-story tower, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, is the second-tallest office building in New York City and the tallest structure within Hudson Yards.
Edge is part of the building’s public spaces, which includes a 10,000-square-foot event space and restaurant on the 101st floor (the highest). It will be operated by London-based restaurant and catering company rhubarb (who also have a restaurant Wild Ink at 20 Hudson Yards) and boast an indoor-outdoor bar opening to the deck on the floor below.

Sadly, Edge won’t be open when the whole of Hudson Yards opens on March 15th. For now, the reservation site is a little vague; to get on “the list” you simply enter your email address and name. According to Hudson Yards’ press team, there will be more information in the coming months.
Group bookings for events happening beginning in the first quarter of 2020 can be arranged by contacting here >>. All other interested New Yorkers can get on the list
