New York City – June 2019 – The Vessel

Hudson Yards is a massive redevelopment of the west side of Manhattan, built over the West Side Rail Yard. With 15 buildings constructed or planned ranging as high as 1,280 feet, it is completely changing the west side.

In the middle of this is the Vessel, a 150′ high honeycomb like structure with 2,500 steps and 80 landings for viewing. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, it has become a popular tourist spot. The crowds are controlled by timed, free tickets, so we were free to move about uncrowded.

While I was taking photos I got the feeling they would all look alike, but was pleasantly surprised when I went through them how different each level and position changed the look.
