New York City’s Hudson Yards continues its foray into fanciful and Instagrammable architecture in March 2020 when its newest feature — Edge — opened to the public. Edge, a cantilevered glass and steel observation deck, promises visitors a view of New York that few have experienced. Jutting from the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards and hanging 1,131 feet in the air, it’s a record setter and will be the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere. Glass walls keep visitors safe, but a glass floor section will offer dizzying views of the buildings and streets below.
