Living In: Hudson Yards


Share Info About Hudson Yards
Manhattan's newest neighborhood is Hudson Yards, named after the massive building and rehabilitation project currently underway on the West Side. The name comes from the rail yards leading into Penn Station, that the entire complex is being built on top of. A special platform was built over the rail yards that connect the rail tunnels under the Hudson River with Penn Station. While the Hudson Yards development may be one of the things this area is known for, it is also the home to an impressive number of shops, restaurants and recreational options--some already here, and some under construction. While the borders of the neighborhood may vary depending on who you ask, everyone agrees that the neighborhood is bounded by the Hudson River on the west. While Eighth Avenue makes up the eastern border, Hudson Yards is bordered by 30th Street on the south and 41st Street on the north. This new neighborhood is made up of the former NW corner of Chelsea, as well as the southern part of Hell's Kitchen. It also "steals" a little from the Garment District. This area is now poised to be the next "big thing" in Manhattan, with a mix of rentals, condos, office buildings, arts facilities and public spaces all completed or slated for completion in the upcoming years. Other than local bus lines and pedestrian options, residents living in Hudson Yards can commute using the 7 line extension at the recently opened 34th Street Station. The M34 bus can also be reached next to this station. Restaurants in Hudson Yards Like most of Manhattan, Hudson Yards enjoys a varied array of international cuisine. From contemporary Asian cuisine to traditional Italian pizzerias, residents can find an eclectic blend of restaurants. On Ninth Avenue, residents can check out the family-owned Tavola Wood Oven Trattoria. This restaurant offers pizza, seafood and salads. For brick oven, Neapolitan pies, check out the family-owned Capizzi. Meanwhile, the Thai Select is a local favorite for its blend of creative cuisine and classic Thai dishes. Looking for a 24/7 coffee shop? Residents can visit the Skylight Diner. Shopping in Hudson Yards By 2018, residents living in Hudson Yards will be able to shop at the Shops at Hudson Yards. This expansive retail space will include top retailers like Neiman Marcus and restaurants like Costas Spiliadis. For grocery shopping options, residents can check out the Brooklyn Fare's gourmet selection. Meanwhile, AMC Loews on 34th Street offers a stream of popular movies. Off-Broadway plays can be enjoyed at the Barrow Group Theatre Company on 36th Street. Soon, the area will also be home to the 200,000 square foot installation, performance and exhibition space at the Shed. Recreation in Hudson Yards One of the most frequented parks in the area is the Hudson Yards Park. While it may just include three fountains, a green area, benches and a picnic space, its location above the subway makes it an easy spot to relax and enjoy a lunch break. In 2018, Hudson Yards will also be the home of the 6.5-acre 7 Public Square. In addition, residents in the area can check out the uber-popular High Line, a park built on former elevated train lines. While most of the park is located in Chelsea/West Chelsea, the newest section of the park (and it's northernmost section) is in Hudson Yards.
