Vessel

Public Square and Gardens  |  View on Map

Vessel remains temporarily closed. Access to the ground-level base is free and open to the public from 10AM to 9PM daily, with no reservation required.


 

The extraordinary centerpiece of Hudson Yards is its spiral staircase, a soaring new landmark. This interactive artwork was imagined by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio as a focal point where people can enjoy new perspectives of the city and one another from different heights, angles and vantage points.

Comprised of 154 intricately interconnecting flights of stairs -- almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings -- the vertical climb offers remarkable views of the city, the river and beyond.

Vessel is made extraordinary by the people who visit, and by experiencing it with others. Each of you matter to us, and to so many others.

 

Vessel will be closed until 3pm on June 13th.
