Hudson Yards has become the cultural center of Manhattan’s New West Side. A template for the future of cities, this new neighborhood has not only changed the way New York looks to the world, but the way the world sees New York. Hudson Yards is New York’s newest neighborhood and home to more than 100 diverse shops and culinary experiences, offices for leaders in industry, significant public art and dynamic cultural institutions.

The new neighborhood

Before, I came to Hudson Yards. I never heard about this new area. I just thought it is a new business and financial place. I knew  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 will redefine Manhattan.

Located between 10th and 12th Avenues from West 30th to West 34th Street, Hudson Yards has 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. I always take 7 train to Long Island city which is very connivence.

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.

Building Hudson Yards

I read some information that Hudson Yards has changed the city’s iconic skyline. Unprecedented and ongoing investment marks Hudson Yards as the nation’s largest private development, and one of the most complex construction projects in the history of New York. Constructed on 28- acres over a working rail yard, two “platforms” bridge over 30 active train tracks, three rail tunnels and the new Gateway Tunnel.

Working in Hudson Yards

It’s a thrilling time to do business at Hudson Yards, because soon more than 40,000 people will arrive to work and to shop, dine and discover their new neighborhood. Connected, adaptable and sustainable, Hudson Yards is imagined as a city for the future, where the world’s leading industries will build enduring legacies. I just find important building.


10 Hudson Yards represents the next step towards the transformation of Manhattan’s West Side into New York’s next great neighborhood. With an advanced infrastructure that is both maximally flexible for tenant fit-outs and technologically smart, 10 Hudson Yards is the first New York commercial office building to receive LEED v2009 Platinum certification. Located at the northwest corner of 30th Street and 10th Avenue, it features panoramic views of the city and the Hudson River and offers floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding column-free interiors, designed to accommodate the modern high-density office environment. 10 Hudson Yards has a direct connection to the celebrated High Line.The tower bridges over the elevated park to create a dramatic 60-foot public passageway that extends through the building. It will also offer a direct connection to the Public Square and Gardens. A good environment for working and live.

50 Hudson Yards

“50 Hudson Yards brings to New York the best of the best.” Stephen M. Ross Chairman and Founder, Related Companies. To work at 50 Hudson Yards means spending your days in the beating heart of New York’s new West Side. Hudson Yards is a model 21st century business and leisure center, drawing life-maximizers of all types residents and professionals, artists and tourists, shoppers and diners with an irresistible symphony of lively activity and refreshing open spaces. And it also has  really good location Just as 50 Hudson Yards soars above the West Side’s hottest destination, Hudson Yards itself sits at the intersection of New York’s coolest districts: Chelsea and The Meatpacking District to the south, Hell’s Kitchen and the Theater District to the north, Madison Square Garden and Midtown to the east. The best the city has to offer is just steps away.

55 Hudson Yards

55 Hudson Yards, designed by A. Eugene Kohn and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, is a 1.3-million-square-foot office building located at the intersection of Hudson Yards, the High Line and Hudson Park & Boulevard. The LEED Gold-designed building will stand 780 feet tall with the entrance located just across from the No. 7 Subway station. The unique façade of 55 Hudson Yards is inspired by the revitalized High Line district, the manufactured cast iron façades of the Soho buildings and the best of early modernism. The matte metal and stepped articulation of the window frames present a strong and solid exterior appearance, which is modern but uniquely New York in character. While the building references the solid exterior of the city’s classic cast iron buildings, it also shares their expansive floor to ceiling windows to maximize interior light.


The new land mark


The extraordinary centerpiece of Hudson Yards is its spiral staircase, a soaring new landmark meant to be climbed. This interactive artwork was imagined by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio as a focal point where people can enjoy new perspectives of the city and one another from different heights, angles and vantage points. Comprised of 154 intricately interconnecting flights of stairs — almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings — the vertical climb offers remarkable views of the city, the river and beyond.


I think the Shed will be the new experience arts center for the New York. The Shed is located where the High Line meets Hudson Yards, adjacent to 15 Hudson Yards and bordering the Public Square and Gardens.The Shed commissions original works of art, across all disciplines, for all audiences. The Shed will brings together established and emerging artists in fields ranging from hip hop to classical music, painting to digital media, theater to literature, and sculpture to dance in an unprecedented movable structure that adapts to support all kinds of inventive work under one roof.


I expect this building opening for a long time. It will opens in early 2020. Along with being the highest outdoor deck in the entire Western Hemisphere and the fifth tallest in the world! It should be fun and it juts out 65 feet from the building with a glass floor to peer at the city below. Amazing view can’t wait.

The culture mix in Hudson Yards

Because Hudson Yards is a new place so different countries people come to there, it will also bring different culture to Hudson Yards even they are tourists. I sit at the outside cafe shop, they all smile and enjoy this new landmark, the new experience of New York.
