Hudson Yards’ Cinematic Sporting Experience

At the crossroads of Manhattan’s dynamic West Side lies Hudson Yards, an urban escape, offering culinary delights, cultural happenings and stylish retail. Crowning the Public Square’s lush gardens sits the lively Backyard at Hudson Yards, home to an iconic open-air 30-foot 4K LED screen.

For nearby denizens at 555TEN seeking a grand-scale game day experience, the Big Screen grants front row seats to the action: international tennis opens, pro golf tournaments, global soccer matches, plus NFL and MLB matchups.

Situated against the backdrop of Thomas Heatherwick’s famed ‘Vessel’, the Big Screen is quite a sight at the foot of the glossy, latticework mega-sculpture, capturing the kinetic spirit of the neighborhood.

Far beyond the average sports bar, Backyard’s sprawling outdoor setup fosters festive camaraderie. Fans lounge in seating pods or relax in cabana-style furniture mere feet from the cinema-sized screen. Surrounded by friends, sipping craft brews and nibbling on first-class street food, the communal atmosphere amplifies the spectating experience.

From the U.S. Open serves to the PGA Championship’s putts, the Big Screen presents sports in magnified detail. Autumn weekends feature college football rivalries and hard-hitting NFL clashes best viewed under the stars. The lively atmosphere rivals that of the stadiums themselves.

For 555TEN residents, catching a primetime matchup on the Big Screen is but a quick jaunt. Upon arrival, you can score a courtside lounger with a direct sightline. No need to compete with the crowds or risk spilling your tasty microbrew when cheering along.

From outdoor concerts at Backyard to screenings of nostalgic and seasonal films on the great lawn, the venue satisfies entertainment cravings in grand fashion. 555TEN offers luxury living with Backyard’s big screen located just down the street.

Experience Fall at the High Line

Rediscovering New York: An Autumn Stroll on the High Line

As we welcome fall, the High Line is where you’ll want to be. Perched on an old rail structure spanning nearly 1.5 miles, the park is a blend of urban chic and nature’s charm. It’s a fresh, elevated way to see the city. And in autumn, it’s pure magic, the perfect place to witness dusk as the lights of the city blend with the brilliant colors of the season.

Best of all, if you’re living in one of the Midtown West apartment rentals at 555TEN, all you have to do is take a leisurely walk down Tenth Avenue to get to the High Line; it’s less than 15 minutes away.

Getting Around

Ready to hop on the rail park? Check out the High Line’s official website for access points. And for the eco-conscious, there’s bike parking by the stair entrances. If you’re looking for some guidance, Bloomberg Connects, the free arts and culture app, dives deep into the park’s gems.

The High Line isn’t just a walk; it’s a curated experience of urban community. Gardens, art spots, and unique views are your companions, as are your fellow New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. The numerous food and drink vendors dotting the park are committed to sustainability, and part of the proceeds from every food purchase go to the High Line.

For those curious about how this rail turned into an urban escape, the park’s “From Freight to Flowers” tour is your (free) ticket. The year-round public tours are led by the High Line docents—local heroes who know every nook and cranny. Private tours can also be purchased for groups of up to 60 people.

Looking for other tours of the park? Free Tours by Foot has got the details. They offer narrated adventures like the “High Line and Chelsea Market Tour” and even a mysterious “Dark Side of the High Line.” And feel free to take your own themeless, private stroll any day of the week for the quintessentially NYC joy of enjoying solitude in the midst of a crowd!
