Is This the Neighborhood New York Deserves? You can see it on the skyline or along the Hudson River, upending Manhattan’s silhouette.

During the last half dozen years, it has materialized almost like a mirage, levitating above more than a dozen gritty acres of working rail tracks on the Far West Side.

The largest mixed-use private real estate venture in American history,it is called Hudson Yards.

The first massive tower emerged at the apex of the High Line, looming over it, a shingled, spiky, reflective blue-glass behemoth, shaped by eccentric cuts and angles as if sheared by a giant Ginsu knife.

Since then, at jaw-dropping magnitudes you can’t begin to grasp until you are actually standing there, Hudson Yards has sprouted a seven-story, 720,000-square-foot shopping mall. There are also four more supertall skyscrapers as well as a $500 million city-sponsored arts center called the Shed, featuring a giant sliding roof, eyecatching swathed in a tufted Teflon-based sheeting that can bring to mind inflated dry cleaning bags.
