Your Own Backyard at Hudson Yards
Living at 555TEN means never being far from the action. Hudson Yards, one of the
city’s most successful shopping and entertainment developments, is just 10 minutes
south of these Midtown luxury rentals, putting world-class stores right in the residents’
backyard. Best of all, Hudson Yards transforms into an outdoor entertainment space
during the summer — Backyard at Hudson Yards — complete with free concerts, film
and sports screenings, and a rotating lineup of food and activities. Keep reading for a
rundown of everything that’s happening at Hudson Yards this summer!
Home to the iconic sculpture known as the Vessel, Hudson Yards combines a traditional
shopping mall with an arts center and public square. The eye-catching Shed theater
features a dynamic polymer roof that retracts to turn the venue into an outdoor
performance space, while Edge is the city’s highest outdoor observation deck. And at
The Shops at Hudson Yards, you’ll find name-brand retailers and high-end boutiques
designed to create a comprehensive shopping experience.
This summer, Hudson Yards teams up with Wells Fargo to host a series of free concerts
to celebrate the city’s vibrant musical culture. On July 20, synthpop sensation Daya will
take to the Backyard at Hudson Yards stage to energize the crowd with her beat-heavy
tunes. One week later, New York’s own indie ensemble MICHELLE will play a set of
their heartfelt music in a show that’s sure to win them a new cohort of fans. All the while,
concertgoers will be able to enjoy food from a selection of food and drink vendors,
anchored by Hudson Yards’ own Jibs seafood restaurant.
For New Yorkers with a mind for sport, the Backyard is home to a massive 30-foot
screen dubbed, appropriately, The Big Screen, on which visitors will find every type of
sporting event imaginable, from the Grand Slam tennis tournaments to the MLB All-Star
Game and more. If you prefer working up a sweat to watching athletes doing that, head
to the Backyard for one of the Power Hour SoulCycle classes. Come fall, the Backyard
will open up for cinephiles with its Movie Nights, with the first screening taking place on
