After my visit to the Edge Sky Deck in New York City, I had time to explore The Shops at Hudson Yards, a high-end shopping experience located in the same building complex at Hudson Yards. Hudson Yards is an expansive real estate development on the West Side of Manhattan. It's a blend of residential, commercial, and public spaces.




“The Shops are a significant addition to Manhattan's retail landscape, boasting 1 million square feet of space and housing a range of department stores and diverse shops.”

The Shops at Hudson Yards forms a centerpiece of luxury and retail innovation. Within this sleek, modern structure, you find a curated selection of shops ranging from well-known brands like Cartier and Dior to unique boutiques that offer an array of goods and services.

The Shops are a significant addition to Manhattan's retail landscape, boasting 1 million square feet of space and housing a range of department stores and diverse shops. Following its opening in 2019, the mall quickly established itself with luxury anchors like Neiman Marcus, which occupied a substantial part of the mall. The mall's offerings represented a Fifth Avenue-style mix with brands such as Dior, Chanel, H&M, Zara, and Sephora.


The COVID-19 pandemic did lead to the closure of several stores and restaurants, but the post-pandemic period has seen a resurgence with new retailers like Louis Vuitton and Levi's, as well as eateries like Magnolia Bakery and Pret A Manger joining the mall.

One of the highlights, especially for those with a sweet tooth, is Dylan's Candy Bar. This store is a colorful wonderland that delights not only children but also adults who enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane. It's an explosion of colors, with walls lined with every candy imaginable.


Amidst the shopping, I stopped for a coffee at Jack's Stir Brew Coffee. The cup I received was not just a beverage but a work of art. The barista had skillfully created a delicate rosetta latte art in the foam, indicative of the care and attention to detail that goes into their craft. The coffee itself was robust and flavorful, a perfect pick-me-up as I continued my exploration.


Just outside The Shops is The Vessel, an interactive 16 floor sculpture that is the centerpiece of Hudson Yards. It’s a must-visit for any architecture enthusiast or anyone looking to capture a memorable photo of their trip.

Also housed within the same complex as The Shops is The Edge, an observation deck that offers breathtaking views from the tallest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere. It's a thrilling experience that quite literally feels like being on the edge of the city's skyline.


Adjacent to the mall is the High Line, an elevated linear park that provides a scenic walkway. This offers a pleasant retreat from the buzz of the city and a different perspective on the urban landscape.


The Shops at Hudson Yards, with its diverse array of stores, proximity to architectural wonders like The Vessel and The Edge, and the serene High Line nearby, makes for a comprehensive and memorable visit for any traveler in New York City.
