Every corner offers unique vantage points that make for great photo opportunities. The cherry on the cake is the Edge, a new viewing platform with sweeping views of the New York skyline and Hudson River. In fact, this is the highest man-made outdoor viewing area in the western hemisphere!

Walk around Art Galleries and “Smart” Public Parks
Hudson Yards stretches over 14 acres, but not every inch is covered by metal and concrete. A significant number of areas are public parks and gardens. What makes them so special is that they’re “the smartest parks” in the city. This means that they were designed with sustainability in mind and built using creative technology.
Last but not least, don’t forget to stop by The Shed, a contemporary art gallery featuring art in all forms, shapes and sizes, and across all disciplines. This is also where Hudson Yards meets The High Line!
