The highest outdoor observation deck in the entire Western Hemisphere is opening in New York City - step out if you dare. At an impressive 1,100 feet, "The Edge" will provide you with incomparable views of the Big Apple with a full panorama of the skyline and sunsets to the west.
Spectators will hop on an elevator ride for 60 seconds and arrive at the 7,500-square-foot outdoor viewing area featuring a large glass floor. Visitors can go even further and lean out over Manhattan on the nine-foot wall of boldly angled glass. In comparison to New York City's other iconic observation points, "The Edge" is 50 feet taller than The Empire State Building, which stands 1,050 feet above street level, and 250 feet taller than the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center which stands at 850 feet.
Additionally, visitors will be able to go even higher and dine on the 101th floor at the 10,000-square-foot bar, restaurant, and event space. An official launch date has not been announced, but group bookings have opened for the first quarter of 2020. For more information and group bookings, click here.
