The Edge’s Outdoor Sky Deck juts out over Hudson Yards in New York's West Side, offering incomparable 360-degree views. Unlike some viewing decks that obscure the view with fencing, this site has angled glass panels that let you peek out over the streets below. The Edge offers a variety of different areas, including the main deck (with a solid floor and glass walls), the glass-floor area, and a champagne bar offering signature cocktails.
There are various ticketing options at the Edge: General admission allows you to book a date and time to visit, while flex passes let you visit any time you'd like on the day you choose. You can also opt for premium packages that include add-ons like a photo book.

How to Get There
The Edge is located in the Hudson Yards complex. The best way to reach the site is by subway; take the 7 train to 34th Street-Hudson Yards station, which is just steps away from the Edge entrance. For a more scenic option, hop on the ferry: Several lines run up and down the Hudson River; get off at the Midtown / West 39th Street dock, which is about a 10-minute walk from Edge.
When to Get There
The Edge is mostly outdoors, so check the weather before booking tickets. Since the deck offers unobstructed west-facing views, it is a great place to see the sunset. Book entry for at least an hour before sunset to make sure you arrive in time, and try to snag tickets early as this is among the most popular times to visit.
The Vessel at Hudson Yards
After admiring the skyline from the Edge observation deck, make a visit to one of NYC's most popular new public artworks: the Vessel. Conveniently located at Hudson Yards, this art installation is a towering structure of interwoven staircases that visitors can climb. Pre-book timed tickets if you want to explore the work. Both the Edge and the Vessel are also located near the High Line, another NYC attraction offering unique art pieces and city views.
