Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States, and its goal is to help Manhattan’s underdeveloped West Side grow.  Once finished, the site will include more than 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space.  New York University is forming a partnership with Hudson Yard’s developers to collect data about the area’s residents and visitors. This will make Hudson Yards the first quantified community in the country. NYU would like to learn how New Yorkers interact with their urban environment in order to improve cities across the country.
