At 1,270 feet, 30 Hudson Yards is the tallest building in the Hudson Yards development. It is also higher than the Empire State building by 20 feet and is currently the 6th tallest in New York City.
Notice the dark triangle jutting out at the top? That’s the Edge, an observation platform currently the highest in Western Hemisphere. My high school friends and I went there a few days before I took this picture. And this is what it looked like from up there.
The tallest and most dramatic in Hudson Yards, I’m assuming it’s the centerpiece of the development. The observation platform is on the 100th floor. There’s also a bar on the 101st floor.
