On March 15th 2019, The Vessel, an original multifunctional building complex located on the west coast of Manhattan in the Chelsea neighborhood, opened in New York City. Created for renovating the Hudson Yards neighborhood, this futuristic iron and wood hive would be can becoming one of the City’s symbols.
Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, the climbable sculpture cost $200 million and includes of an organized group of office, shopping center, restaurants, apartments, hotels, gardens and a center of art and culture.
New York is full of breath-taking views, but watching the City move under of you from different perspectives is a unique experience.
You can shop from 100 shops and try a meal in many restaurants, which is why The Vessel can become a must-visit in Manhattan!
This vertical labyrinth of 154 staircases, nearly 2,500 steps and 80 landings is open Monday to Sunday from 10:00AM to 9:00PM and you need a ticket to enter.

You can easily get to subway and stop at Penn Station 34 St. and coming out on 33st. & 8AV / Madison Square Garden. Then just walk two blocks about on the W 33rd st.
There is still much to do and it seems that multinationals are very interested in the project. Do you agree with me that The Vessel is a place to keep an eye on? How will it evolve? Will it become a nerve center of the City?
