NEW YORK — Hudson Yards still has a trick or two up its sleeve.
On Wednesday, the development on Manhattan's far west side, marked by shiny high-rise buildings and the Vessel, a curiously shaped landmark with a lot of stairs, presents a new offering.
One hundred floors up and more than 1,100 feet in the air, Edge has built-in bragging rights: It is, after all, the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. Take that One World Observatory and Willis Tower.
The outdoor space edges (get it?) out into Manhattan, approximately 80 feet, with head-spinning 360-degree views of the city's skyline and beyond.
Adrenaline seekers will want to make a beeline for the triangular glass floor at the center of it all, the space's indisputable showstopper.
The glass floor, CNN has been told, is basically indestructible. You can jump up and down on it, lie flat and watch the cars moving below like ants. Or you might simply marvel at how surprisingly challenging it is to take that first step — even if you're not afraid of heights, even if you know the floor is totally solid.
Walk on the glass, take a picture for Instagram or just enjoy a flute of Champagne (well, in this case, a plastic cup because safety first) as you look out over Manhattan, New Jersey and Brooklyn.
Summers in Spain — especially beach towns like Ibiza or in the Canary Islands — are best spent sipping on a refreshing, fruity glass of sangria. Although Sangria dates back hundreds of years, it didn’t hit the United States’ radar until it was served at the Spanish World Area during the 1964 World’s Fair in New York.
“This myth links back to receiving an upgrade for celebrating a special occasion: The more you communicate ahead of time, the more likely you are to get that upgrade,” says Miller. However, he says, there are certain times of the day you might be less likely to get an upgrade.

If you’re planning a special trip or staycation to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or honeymoon, it might seem like a good idea to see if you can get a hotel room upgrade. After all, it’s a festive celebration, and chances are, the hotel has some empty suites anyway. Right? Maybe.
Government officials in Greece have announced that the country would open to foreign visitors on June 15.

Miller says that the decision on a guest’s upgrade is almost always made at the front desk before they check-in, so don’t expect an upgrade day-of — although if the hotel is wide open with rooms, that may be a different story. If the hotel is tight on availability, the decision might have been made a few weeks prior. “The more time and prep they can have, the better chances you’ll have (of getting the upgrade),” says Miller. “(Asking) last-minute, as you check in, will give you the smallest chance possible.”
