Want to get the ultimate view of the Manhattan skyline? And the entire New Jersey and beautiful Brooklyn? Then visit The Edge. 

The highest observation deck in the Western Hemisphere just opened (335 m high up) and is situated in the Vessel building in New York's West side. 

You pay whopping $38 (R620) bucks to go up, but they all say it’s worth it! Fly up 100 floors by elevator – this only takes 52 seconds – and there you have it: one of the world's best-ever views.  

CNN reports that the magnificent outdoor space edges out into Manhattan at approximately 80 feet (24 m) giving you lots of space to take in these almost head-spinning 360-degree views of the city that never sleeps. 

At the very centre of it is a triangular glass floor. And apparently, it's completely indestructible. So feel free to jump up and down on it!

NYC... we're coming. When corona settles down.
