How to Get There
Hudson Yards is located between the West Side Highway and 10th Avenue and runs from 30th street up to 34th Street. The site is well connected to NYC public transit: The most convenient and direct way to reach the complex is to take the 7 train to the 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station. If you're traveling from the east side, transfer to the 7 from other trains at Grand Central Station or take a cross-town bus across 34th Street. You can also take a ferry to the West 39th Street terminal or reach the site from New Jersey via the Lincoln Tunnel.
When to Get There
Hudson Yards includes apartments, offices, and other types of buildings, and the various shops, restaurants, and attractions set their own hours. Though there's no bad time to visit, this West Side destination offers enviable sunset views. You can book free tickets to climb the Vessel to admire sunset on the Hudson River, or try for coveted evening tickets to the Edge observation deck. The area is particularly busy on weekends and during the busy summer tourist season.
