We’ve been hearing about it for years and may have even seen the buildings popping up along the West Side of Manhattan. It’s New York’s newest neighborhood; yes, you read that correctly. An entire new neighborhood in our already crowded city. We think that’s pretty cool.
Hudson Yard’s is now home to more than 100 diverse shops and culinary experiences, offices for leaders in industry, significant public art and dynamic cultural institutions including The Shed, modern residences, 14 acres of public plazas, gardens and groves and the world’s first Equinox Hotel®.
The area surrounding Hudson Yards has a rich and storied past – from the heyday of the Chelsea Hotel, to the city’s hard-working waterfront, to the revitalized food and art scene of Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen. Hudson Yards is adding to that tradition, propelling the area from it’s industrious past towards a future that has already redefined Manhattan.
Where is it? Diving neighborhoods is always a tall task in this city. Hudson Yard’s is located between 10th and 12th Avenues from West 30th to West 34th Street, there are ample connections to commuter rail service, the subway, the West Side Highway, the Lincoln Tunnel and ferries along the Hudson River. The extension of the No. 7 Subway line arrives at the Hudson Yards station, which opened in 2015.
The neighborhood buzzes with activity, and is known for chic art galleries, inviting restaurants and bars, and international fashion and design. The celebrated High Line and the new Public Square and Gardens and Hudson Park & Boulevard will welcome residents and visitors to expansive open green space.
There are a series of towers built cantilevered over a swath of rail yards, which opened on March 15th and cost a cool $20 billion in development. While we are usually telling you of upcoming events, March 15th was only the beginning. Visiting Hudson Yard’s is an event.
