Have you seen New York City’s newest landmark?
Meet the Vessel! It’s the centerpiece of the new Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s west side. It’s an architectural masterpiece — 154 interconnecting staircases, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen in NYC and the city views from here are incredible as you climb up. Best part about it is that it’s free for anyone to explore. Free tickets are available the day of your visit (go early to avoid the crowds) or reserve tickets online before you go at the hudsonyardsnewyork.com website.
FAMILY FUN: Take the ! They’ll love exploring this staircase maze and taking in the city from different angles and at different heights as they climb to the top. As you climb you’ll also get great views of the Hudson River and Weekawken, NJ across the river. Make it all the way to the top of the Vessel and you’ll be standing 150 feet above ground level. The city views from here are impressive! There is an elevator for disabled visitors ONLY. No strollers allowed. You’ll have to park those outside before you enter. Once you’re done checking out the Vessel, don’t leave without exploring the rest of Hudson Yards. There’s so much to see and do here! Check out the shops, grab a yummy bite, and see some cool art too! Don’t leave without checking out Snark Park, an immersive exhibition that will house three different exhibitions per year. “Lost and Found” is the current one (now though August). There’s lots of family-fun to be had at the new Hudson Yards and the Vessel is definitely an experience not to be missed! No matter if you’re a tourist or if NYC is the place your family calls home. Go! The climb to the top is totally worth every step
