The Vessel at Hudson Yards

New York, New York 

New York City has a new landmark. It’s called the Vessel, and it’s located at Hudson Yards. That’s a development of shops, residences, office buildings, and green spaces on the west side of Manhattan. The Vessel, which opened to the public in March 2019, is the centerpiece of it all. The honeycomb-like structure has 154 interconnecting flights of stairs and nearly 2,500 steps. As visitors climb the many staircases, they are rewarded with a series of unique city views from different angles and heights. —Rebecca Mordechai
