The Vessel

by on Dec.23, 2019, under Life, Photography

This extraordinary centrepiece of Hudson Yards is a structure known as The Vessel. A massive spiral staircase, a soaring landmark meant to be climbed. This interactive artwork was imagined by British designer Thomas Heatherwick as a focal point where people can enjoy new perspectives of the city and one another from different heights, angles and vantage points

16 stories high it is 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

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

This structure only opened earlier this year so it wasn’t here last time we were in New York. My wife was at a client meeting so I knew we’d be coming back here at a later stage for her to visit

I was visiting on a nice overcast day which was good for photos. I also got to make good use of my very handy insanely ultrawide 14mm focal length of the 14-30mm Z series lens
