NYC: Edge Observation Deck Admission Ticket

1. NYC: Edge Observation Deck Admission Ticket

Edge is a marvel of architecture, engineering, and technology, suspended in mid-air over 1100 feet above the ground, giving you the feeling of floating in the sky. With Edge's unique vantage point on the western side of Midtown Manhattan, take in the entire Manhattan skyline from 1 place—from the tip of Central Park down to the Statue of Liberty and beyond. Begin your journey on Level 4 of The Shops at Hudson Yards, where you will enter into an immersive multimedia experience explaining the design, construction, and sustainability of Hudson Yards. Then, head up over 1100 feet to the Observation Deck, and then 80 feet out into the air on the Outdoor Sky Deck. Here, frameless glass panels walls are boldly angled outwards to allow you to feel the thrill of leaning out over the edge with the busy city below. Next, stand on the glass floor and look over 100 stories straight down to the city streets below your feet. At Edge's furthest point, The Eastern Point, there's space for one person to stand alone, surrounded by glass, air, and sky—you will never have had a picture quite like it. The upper level also features the Skyline Steps, where you can look out over the top of the glass panels and past the edge of the deck. Have a seat and hang out in the sky with your friends and family, or head indoors and sip champagne or a signature cocktail at the Champagne Bar. When you leave be sure to visit Hudson Yards centerpiece, Vessel, or enjoy a bite to eat or shopping experience at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards.

Friendly guide that showed us tons of places that we never would have found on our own. Great thing about her was that she was very flexible and able to adjust the tour according to what different people wanted to see. There was a ton of walking and with seeing so many sites in a group there were places that we liked that we had to rush through for the sake of time. Sandy, our guide, did her best to give us breaks which we appreciated. Also I would add that though the guide told us things about every place we didn't really go into great depth at any one location, but with but the amount of places we visited that would have been hard. Overall we had a good time and appreciated that Sandy really does go out of her way to show everybody what they want to see. If you are up for some walking we recommend this tour.

Breathtaking, amazing view - luckily we had sunshine and could enjoy the marvelous city views! We enjoyed it so much - if you are scared of heights - it is still worth going, simply stay inside the building behind the huge glass windows!

Das einchecken lief alles problemlos. Es ist einfach toll diese Aussicht über New York. Man kann auch herrlich im Innenbereich bei einem Glas Wein oder Prosecco die Aussicht. Oder einfach nur hinsetzen und genießen

Buying the tickets was very quick and easy. The voucher was immediately visible in the app.

It was a very satisfied experience we love it definitely for a come back..
