The Vessel


Over on the west side of Manhattan, and south of the Javits center is a huge new development called "Hudson Yards."  This is an artwork which is the centerpiece of the development, temporarily called "The Vessel."  The elaborate honeycomb-like structure rises 16 stories and consists of 154 flights of stairs, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings for visitors to climb.  So you can visit it for free, but you need to get tickets online, or hope they have tickets available at the park on the day you visit. The sculpture has received acclaim and criticism.  Fortune called Vessel "Manhattan's answer to the Eiffel Tower.” Elle Decor compared Vessel to an M. C. Escher drawing. The New York Times said the sculpture, while a "stairway to nowhere" in the utilitarian sense, served as an "exclamation point" to the northern terminus of the High Line Park.  I need to get a ticket actually visit The Vessel, and photograph it, so stay tuned.

I remember watching a segment on CBS Sunday Morning several months ago and thinking "I want to see this in person". I love the honeycomb shape and the color. Joan & I will have to plan on a trip into NYC to visit with you and check out the Vessel. betsey
