Reservations Are Open To Climb Hudson Yards “Vessel” Beginning This Weekend

The 150-foot-tall, honeycomb-shaped art installation “Vessel” will finally open to the public at the end of the week.

In preparation, the Hudson Yards team has created entrance time slots where people can sign up in advance to manage the influx of people who will surely be heading to the plaza to climb the 154 flights, and 2,500 steps to its top! The installation is free to enter, you’ll just have to reserve your time through their website here first to secure your spot.

“Vessel” construction broke ground in April 2017 and the finishing touches are taking palces before its grand opening. The public interactive installation is a one mile vertical climb designed by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio.

The installation will be located at the heart of Hudson Yards in the Public Square and Gardens, and will be open daily from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. The massive new installation will have 80 platforms (or landing points) that look out over the city, offering plenty of opportunities to take in those stunning views. Here’s a look at the staircase and words from Heatherwick that truly shows his passion for this project and what it will bring to NYC.
