The New York City skyline is one of the most famous and recognizable skylines in the world. It’s a city filled with skyscrapers and tall buildings. In most recent years, it has been expanding which made way for new observation decks. Hudson Yards’ Edge will be open in March. The newest observation deck coming to the city will be located at the top of the One Vanderbilt Building. This one will be called “The Summit”. This deck will be the second-highest outdoor deck in NYC which follows the soon-to-be-open, Edge.


Where is the Summit Located and When Will it Open?

The New York City Skyline

The Summit will be located on the 59th floor of the new One Vanderbilt building. It is on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Ave and will have 67 floors. It is set to fill up with tenants in August of 2020 and the observation deck will open sometime in 2021.

What are the Features of this Observation Deck in NYC?

The Summit will feature not one, but two glass ledges that will overlook Madison Avenue which is very similar to the Skydeck in Chicago. The 59th floor will have the deck as well as food and beverage options and the floor below will have an “infinity room”.

One Vanderbilt will be Midtown’s tallest building and will overtake the Steinway Tower. One Vanderbilt will stand at 1,401 feet and will be the fourth tallest building in all of NYC. One Vanderbilt and The Summit costs approximately at least 3 billion dollars. Future companies have already been confirmed to move in once the building opens.

From floors 57 and 58 you can enjoy the view of Midtown and it’s guaranteed to be really impressive with glass windows over 32 feet high!

One Vanderbilt The Summit Tickets

There are currently no tickets for the viewing platform, but we’ll make sure to let you know first. Until then, you can visit one of the other observation platforms in New York: Rhe Empire State Building, One World Observatory, Top of the Rock and, from March of 2020, The Edge Hudson Yards.

The official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the building will take place on August 4, 2020.

Being a photographer and creative in general, New York City, I think is the perfect place to be. I moved to NYC from Boston in 2013 and never looked back. Loving New York has given me the opportunity to do what I love and share those images with you all.
