Had the opportunity to visit the opening of the Hudson Yards this weekend. Here are my initial thoughts on the the Vessel and the Hudson Yards Mall, respectively. The Vessel hails itself as an architectural sculpture, a title that is undeserved. The object of the beehive-shaped waste of space is for spontaneous self-reflection as per Thomas Heatherwick. It provides neither spontaneity nor a chance for self-reflection as in order to climb the mile-plus stair to nowhere you need to obtain a time-sensitive ticket that grants you an entry time and no exit time, no spontaneous stair climbing to be had. As for self-reflection, the Vessel asks, no demands, your attention for the duration of your trek. There is no you, there is only Vessel. The mall is already an antiquated idea that has outlived it's usefulness. Traditionally, a mall is for the people and has 2-3 high end "anchor" tenants. This mall is full of anchor tenants that are catering to the .1%. If it were to float away on that billion dollar pier system, my life would be no different, we should demand more especially when this development has over $3billion in public subsidies. The Shed by Diller, Scofidio, and Renfro is still the most novel piece of architecture on the site. Outside of that the development thus far has provided nothing more than a spot for selfies, maybe thats all they wanted?

Did you know? The Randall’s Island Connector is the youngest bridge on the Island. Interestingly, it is located right under the oldest bridge on the Island - The Hell Gate Bridge! funfacts

The East River has been affected by pollution during a great period of the history of New York. One of the reasons for this is the combined sewer system (wastewater + rainwater) and the river serving as a garbage disposal site for some people in the past. Fortunately, these issues have been largely addressed with the help of the government and concerned denizens like you and I. However, there's still lots to do. Help to preserve the East River by throwing all your garbage in garbage bins and by reducing the consumption of disposable non-biodegradable goods.⠀ ⠀ NewYorkCity EastRiver nature river reusablebags pollution waste city
