The area surrounding Hudson Yards has a rich and storied past—from the heyday of the Chelsea Hotel and the city’s hardworking 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 its industrious past toward a future that will redefine Manhattan.

The neighborhood buzzes with activity and is known for chic art galleries, inviting restaurants and bars, and international fashion and design. This year, the celebrated High Line, the new Public Square and Gardens, and Hudson Park & Boulevard will welcome residents and groups to an expansive open green space.

Navigating to Hudson Yards is made easy by the city’s well-organized public transportation routes. Located between 10th and 12th avenues from West 30th to West 34th streets, 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.
