Hudson Yards Set to Have Tallest Observation Deck in NYC
By PIX 11

HUDSON YARDS, Manhattan — The Hudson Yards development will have the tallest outdoor observation deck in the Big Apple, beating out the view from the Empire State Building by 50 feet.

With 360 views, the open-air deck will be situated 1,100-feet above the ground.

According to the developers, Related Companies, several million visitors are expected a year to take in the spectacular views.

The observation deck will be a part of the 92-story skyscraper at 30 Hudson Yards, which will soon be the fourth-tallest building in the city.

Hudson yards eventually include about 17-million square feet of residential and commercial space in an area west of 10th Avenue from 23rd to 42nd streets.

They will also have a restaurant and bar near the observation deck. It's slated to open in 2019.
