Fleurs de Villes will return by popular demand to Hudson Yards, October 7-16, 2022, with our global Fleurs de Villes FEMMES exhibit celebrating remarkable women. We’d like to show you around this innovative development on the Hudson River in midtown Manhattan.

DO 

Get your steps in by climbing the Edge, the highest sky deck in the Western Hemisphere where you can look 100 storeys down through a glass floor. The 360 degree view provides a unique vantage point for the city. For more down-to-Earth entertainment check out free screenings of sports events and more on a 30-foot big screen at Backyard at Hudson Yards

STROLL

The High Line public park, an abandoned elevated subway line, connects to the Yards making it a perfect place to stroll the 1.5 mile garden. See the manmade Little Island art installation (gifted to the city by Diane Von Furstenberg and her husband) or walk a little further to The Standard Highline Grill. The classic brasserie serves seafood and steaks from a French chef who was a protégé of Paris’ famed Joël Robuchon.

SHOP

In addition to luxury brands like Dior and Louis Vuitton, Hudson Yards is home to innovative retail concepts such as Racefaster, a store for serious runners, Camp, a space dedicated to kids, and bike café Strictly Cycling. Those with a sweet tooth can also get their fix at Dylan’s Candy Bar (from designer Ralph Lauren’s daughter,) Ladurée from Paris and Magnolia Bakery of Sex and the City fame. 

SEE 

Check out the latest art shows and performances at event venue, The Shed. Look familiar? You might remember it as the location of Kendal’s notorious over-the-top 40th birthday party on Succession. Or head further afield to Broadway to see Funny Girl, with newly recast Fanny Brice played by Glee’s Lea Michele, who famously sang the showtune “Don’t Rain on My Parade” in one episode.
