The Hudson Yards Observation Deck is starting to finally take its shape. It’s a huge project which happens to cost about 25 billion dollars. It started in 2005 and is the most expensive project in American history so far. Hudson Yards will be a new business district in Midtown Manhattan and construction for this enormous project is almost finished.
Hudson Yards will not just have office buildings but it’ll be designed to attract visitors as well. In addition to a shopping center, food markets and restaurants, the tallest outdoor viewing platform in the western hemisphere will be built. Views will be endless and will definitely give the Top of the Rock, Empire State Building and One World Trade some competition.
The 30 Hudson Yards skyscraper is said to be the largest out of all the new Hudson Yards district at over 1,000 feet. The new platform will be on the 100th floor. Again, this platform will make it the highest outdoor observation deck in the western hemisphere and the 5th tallest in the world. The deck will feature a “bird’s-eye-view” perspective and a glass bottom will give you an unobstructed view of Manhattan. You’ll be able to see the city as well as New Jersey which is right across the river. Getting to Hudson Yards is pretty convenient as well. You can take the 7 Train which also passes by major stations such as Grand Central, Bryant Park and Time Square.
As of right now, since the building is still under-construction, tickets are not yet available for sale. Hudson Yards Observation Deck is scheduled to open in 2019 but be sure to keep an eye on this website. Once we have more information for tickets, we will definitely let you know how to obtain them.
