^Those are supposed to be such epic shots, but I'm noticing all the greasy smears on the glass, caused by people wiping their dirty paws all over it, LOL.

Yeah, I go up there to see and get photos of the view, seems mostly everyone else goes up there to be in the view. All good times though, and it's what Related wants, and why that deck has remained crowded, even through the pandemic.

^I saw that video, it's awesome! They even showed a little of One Penn's makeover in progress, very nice!

I can't wait till I can visit the deck, I got my second shot a week and a half ago.

The Summit opens in a couple of months, then I can finally see the two go head to head.

^Looks like they're messing with One Penn's new crown lighting in the background.

NYC’s Hudson Yards debuts world’s highest outdoor building climb





By Zachary Kussin
October 26, 2021


Quote:
It’s the really high line.

Starting Nov. 9, thrill seekers can walk almost to the tippy-top of the 1,296-foot-tall 30 Hudson Yards skyscraper in Midtown, but not from the comforts of an indoor observatory.

This trek takes visitors along the outside of the building — with no windows or other protective barriers standing between them and sky-high views of the Big Apple. They will, however, be equipped with safety harnesses.
Quote:
Welcome to City Climb, a high-altitude attraction that takes up to eight daredevils and their skyscraper sherpa to a dizzying 1,271-foot-high perch, called the “Apex,” near the tower’s crown.

It begins at the building’s 100-story-high Edge observatory and only gets higher from there, with guests taken along a dizzying series of stairs and platforms that continually rise in altitude.

All it takes is $185 for a ticket and a strong stomach.
Quote:
Visitors with lesser constitutions can stick to Edge — a viewing platform 1,131 feet up that’s safely ensconced by glass paneling where general admission starts at $36 for adults. There, you can step out onto a portion of glass flooring for an added thrill.

From that platform, trained guides take participants on the vertigo-inducing climb and ascend a series of steps to reach the aptly named “Apex.”

Along the way, they visit a perch named “The Cliff,” where they can look down a full 1,190 feet to the street.
Quote:
The most intense portion comes during a 161-step climb up a 45-degree incline to the top.

Once they reach the zenith, climbers can get an extra thrill by leaning off the Apex’s open-air viewing platform — with nothing obstructing their panoramic views, which extend out to the Atlantic Ocean.

It’s “a chance to live out a superhero fantasy at the top of NYC,” Cassie Davison, vice president of marketing for Hudson Yards Experiences, told The Post.
