Meeting point

Where to meet your guide
Meet in front of the Vessel at Hudson Yards. The 34th Street-Hudson Yards Subway Station on the 7 subway line is the nearest. We will meet inside the main entrance of the Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards, across from Vessel, during inclement weather. The Vessel is situated between 30th and 34th streets and 10th and 11th avenues.

FAQs

When are the timed entry tickets for Vessel and Edge?

We’ll work together to secure your timed entry tickets to Vessel and the Edge observatory after the tour. The vessel is usually visited first around 4 p.m., followed by Edge at 5 p.m. However, depending on availability, times may vary slightly.

What is Vessel?

Hudson Yards’ centerpiece is Vessel. This 150-foot interactive artwork contains interconnected flights of stairs that allow you to experience different perspectives of New York City with each step.

What is the Edge observatory?

Edge boasts the tallest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere, at 1,100 ft. Its glass floor, which allows you to gaze straight down 100 stories, and its diagonal outer barrier will enable you to lean over the edge of New York for unrivaled vistas of the city. A champagne bar and a corner where one person may stand surrounded solely by glass and sky are unique features.

How much walking is there?

There are 1-2 miles of walking at a leisurely pace. If you’re traveling with a stroller or wheelchair, the High Line also includes elevator access instead of stairs. However, the elevator may or may not be functional. If mobility is an issue, you can also book a private tour.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

What about gratuities?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
