Manhattan Skyline Golden-edged Blue Hour
A view of the midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River as the last sundown golden light fades away and the deep blue shadows of the blue hour began to signal twilight time. The towers of the Hudson Yards project stand tall aboe the other buildings to dominnate the city view. Hudson Yards is a new development located on the west side of the city, the largest NYC construction project since Rockefeller Center was built. The massive project of 28 acres, billed as a destination neighborhood, consists of multiple high rise towers for both residential and office use; a retail center; restaurants, a school; a performing arts shed; and a public square with an climbable sculpture named the Vessel. The complex is adjacent to the High Line Park and the Chelsea neighborhood to the south, Hell's Kitchen to the north, midtown to the east and the Hudson River to the west. The project , requiring many new innovations, is constructed over a working rail yard with more than 30 active train tracks and rail tunnels. The tallest building on the site, 30 Hudson Yards, when opened in 2019 will feature the highest outdoor observation deck in the western hemisphere. Jutting out from the 100th floor, the outdoor platform will extend out 65 feet to allow spectacular views. The project has completely changed the face of the city skyline. Where once the beautiful Empire State Building held court to be seen from miles away, marking holidays and events with it's colorful tower lighting, it is now sadly obscured from view from many spots along the New Jersey waterfront as the modern towers of Hudson Yards rise.
