Pre-book your preferred time and make your way to Hudson Yards and Edge. With your admission ticket in hand, bypass long ticket lines and head straight inside.

Begin your journey in an immersive multimedia experience, which provides background information about the design and construction of Hudson Yards. Then, head up over 1,100 feet (338 meters) to the Observation Deck for sweeping city views.

Steel yourself and step 80 feet (27 meters) over the edge and out into the air on the Outdoor Sky Deck—experience the thrilling sensation of looking down at the bustling city below your feet.

Get your photo taken at Edge's furthest point, the Eastern Point, where you are surrounded by nothing by glass and sky.

Toast your experience with a beverage at the Champagne Bar (at own expense).

    Loved this experience and going on to the deck was amazing. The glass panel in the floor has to be done. What a fantastic experience.
    Far too crowded
    Louisa_L, Apr 2024
    Zero visibility for our time of entry , fair enough, bad weather is out of anyone’s control but we were told we could return in the evening. We went all the way back to be told we needed new tickets, sorted that but the deck was closed to high winds but we could go and look from the inside which we did but it was far too crowded and queues to try and get back down
    Viator refused to refund
    Shenelle_W, Apr 2024
    Unfortunately we didn’t get to experience this event. As we arrived the young man at front told us it was raining and we can reschedule or chance it. We had no other day to reschedule to so we said we’ll still go up. After walking down to elevator attendant she told us nobody can go up it’s closed. We went back to front where everyone who purchased through edge got refunds and we were told to contact viator whom refused refund. We never cancelled or refused to go up due to weather. Edge closed it down. Unsure I’ll use this site in future.
    Great view from NYC.

    Great attraction. Superb view of the city. Would definitely recommend it, especially on a sunny day.
    Extraordinary experience
    SUNDARRAJA_P, Apr 2024
    Enjoyed every minute of the edge of life feel. I wish more people would experience it. Better feeling than Tilt of Chicago
    Must Do for Thrill Seekers
    Phyo_M, Apr 2024
    It was a last minute decision to do the Edge with my wife, and I am glad we did it. View was amazing and thrilling. Must do activity in NYC!
    Elevator ride was nice,...
    Chris_G, Apr 2024
    Elevator ride was nice, walkthrough and whole UX was planned out well, we were directed very clearly by everyone on where to go also.
    The city never sleeps view at 100

    Awesome experience to have at night where you see the whole of new york lit up highly recommended ….
    Too little for too much
    Ivan_F, Apr 2024
    View is great if you haven't been on any other observation. But the most irritating thing was event on floor above that you aren't informed about so they block half of stairs and the floor itself. Also there was really rude personel bothering us about where can we stand. For just a view and nothing else to do except pumped prices for beverages the price is too high.
    Bezt city view
    EduardoJr_D, Apr 2024
    The best city vewpoint experience..a lot better than Empire States'..very worth your money!! We were late a day because of flight cancellation but we've been accomodated service ever!!
    Awesome views of skyline
    john_l, Apr 2024
    Visited at sunset. The colours and skyline at this time, on such a clear day, really made our visit very memorable. We all loved it.
    Pauline_H, Apr 2024
    It was great, the view was amazing despite the bad weather and visuability. I would definitely come back for another trip.
    Tiffany_D, Apr 2024
    Awful experience, the weather was terrible which I know can’t be helped but there was no offer of a refund as we can’t do an alternative date as it was our last day. I found the staff to be unsympathetic to our frustration also.

    Quite the experience. Visually appealing and exciting! Recommend getting a drink included with ticket, they are more expensive when you are at the top. The view is incredible and worth it
    Fabulous views
    Ailsa_B, Apr 2024
    Fabulous views. Worth the trip. A bit of queuing to start, but as you queue you learn about the history of Hudson Yards. We were a bit nervous about the lift ride to the top but the way this is done with story visials on the walls inside you barely notice the brief ride to the top. Fabulous views and you feel totally safe.
    Perfect at sunset
    Dan_B, Apr 2024
    Perfectly timed for the sunset. Views over Manhattan were amazing. Definitely recommend this to everyone.
    too many people
    Paul_S, Apr 2024
    thought it was a timed entry to limit people on the edge at one time. It was so crowded on Friday morning that we had a hard time seeing at the glass and walking around
    Plan on extra time
    Denise_V, Apr 2024
    It was a cluster mess to get in even with a reservation. We did not reach the 102floor until about an hour after our scheduled time. Very busy day. Beautiful views
    Superb views
    Svetlana_T, Apr 2024
