Get to know Hudson Yards

Where previously there was nothing, Hudson Yards has sprung. (Well, not strictly nothing, but how often would the average person need to travel several avenues over to the Javits Center or the rail yard?) Farther west than most previously wouldn’t deign to go, massive redevelopment has stimulated the construction of many residential and commercial properties. From high-rises off the western shore of Manhattan, one can gaze out across the entire city (and even some of New Jersey). And the area is still growing: Many businesses have moved their headquarters to Hudson Yards, and there several more residences, offices, and hotels to come. The 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station entirely does away with the notion that this section of the city is isolated. 7 Train service can link you to a multitude of lines at Times Square, Fifth Avenue, and Grand Central—or it can take you all the way into Queens.

Commerce & Culture

Even though the subway can connect you to anywhere in the city, it is hard to deny that Hudson Yards can at least feel like a great distance removed. Thankfully, the neighborhood contains everything you could want. Shopping is well-covered, with dozens of luxury stores available for perusal. Apparel, jewelry, beauty: it’s all there, and then some, under the banners of familiar, worldwide brands. Dining in Hudson Yards means a collection of restaurants from some of the biggest names in the industry. With a sprawling area, there is ample room to explore and even relax in some green space. If you’d like to explore other neighborhoods but don’t want to head underground, the northern entrance to the High Line is at the southern edge of Hudson Yards. The elevated park can take you down through Chelsea and all the way into the Meatpacking District.
