100,000 flowers to decorate Edge Observation Deck

Located on the 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards, The Edge is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The Edge is famous for its open-air observation deck with glass floor, slanted glass walls and a transparent staircase leading to the 101st floor.
The skyline views are spectacular from this height, and the Edge is made even more impressive by the changing scenery throughout the summer, created by Evie Joy Flowers. Visitors will enter a cloud of flowers in all shapes and sizes, including garden roses, ranunculus, poppies and wisteria, while taking in unrivaled views.

“Upon entering Edge, guests will be immersed in an incredible experience with over 100,000 flowers carefully crafted to reflect floral art,” said Ivie Joy, founder, CEO and creative director of Ivie Joy Floral Arts+. – Whimsical displays of hydrangea, eucalyptus, lavender, poppy and wisteria frame the vast New York skyline. Evie Joy was born in the heart of New York City and this installation was designed to reflect the love we have for the place we call home.”
The best time to go there is before sunset to enjoy the daylight experience and then watch the sky change and see the city lit up.
The Edge is also home to the City Climb, the tallest outdoor building in the world. City Climb, located on top of the skyscraper, allows guests to climb to the outside of the building and then lean out from an open platform at the top of the skyscraper. Those who are less brave can just stop and smell the flowers, take a few pictures and take the high-speed elevator down.
Tickets to Edge start at $33 for adults living in New York and $35 for visitors to the city.
