SPECTACULARNESS is the word to describe this 360 degree NYC view on the 100th floor at Hudson Yards. An exciting glass floor to see down to the sidewalk. The entire floor of exhibit is marble except for a triangle piece that one can sit , lay on or just look down and see peeps as tiny ants. The elevator ride is dizzying with a panorama movie of the city that leaves you speechless & slightly off-balance. The view is so grand, I am at a loss for words. The Edge is higher than the construction cranes. It is the highest structure in the Western Hemisphere (wherever that is)! The day I stepped out onto the EDGE it was brisk & windy but clear. The gigantic Statue of Liberty was tiny. Interestingly you can be a voyeur and look into office buildings & apartments so I wish I had binoculars. I could see my apartment building in Jersey. There is no time limit to your viewing. The employees are friendly and knowledgeable. They will not take pics of you so bring a friend or two. Now is the time to go during Covid-19 cause there are no lines. We walked into the building bought tix and began our scenic adventure. Oh, get this if you go at sunset there is an extra charge. I felt like I was on a magic carpet ride. This exhibit is magical, dizzying, panoramic and not to be missed.
Hey who is better than me–No one! So we decided to complete the adventure and went to the Champagne Bar to enhance the experience, Now this is pricey: we had 2 glasses of Mumm Grand Cordon Brut Champagne in an EDGE plastic memento glass, plus my other friend had a spiked Hot Chocolate with Baileys & without tip came to $65.00. I saved myself a few bucks not knowing how to put a $5.00 tip on my charge & instead I put in .05 The bar tender said not to worry cause they were doing well. I offered $5.00 but not allowed to take cash. Please do this because then you go out to this beautiful set of steps to enjoy your beverages. The Skyline steps have 50,000 lites plus embedded flowers that make for a wonderful moment. My girlfriend exchanged Christmas gifts and for sure it was memorable 101 stories in the air. I was so in the moment, I forgot to give her one of her gifts. LOL! All that is left to say is adjectives to describe this incredible experience: amazing, marvelous, astounding, wonderful, surprising, wondrous! When you visit the EDGE let me know what your descriptive words are.
