Hudson Yards Experiences announced on Thursday that tickets are now on sale for the deck – called “Edge “ – which opens on March 11, 2020.

The deck, surrounded by tall glass panels, is anchored on two sides of a skyscraper at 30 Hudson Yards.

A peek-a-boo portion of the floor allows for a dizzying selfie with the chasm beneath.

Visitors can even climb outdoor “skyline steps” from the 100th to 101st floor.
