A walk on The Vessel at Hudson Yards, which opened on March 15, 2019.

From Wikipedia:
"Vessel (alternately called Hudson Yards Staircase) is a public structure and landmark that was built as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project in Manhattan, New York City. The concept for Vessel was revealed in 2016. Construction started in April 2017. The structure topped out in December 2017 and opened on March 15, 2019.

The elaborate honeycomb-like structure rises 16 stories and consists of 154 flights of stairs, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings that visitors would be able to climb. Designed by the British designer Thomas Heatherwick, Vessel is the main feature of the 5-acre (2.0 ha) Hudson Yards Public Square. It is expected to have a final cost of $200 million.

Vessel is a 16-story structure of connected staircases between the buildings of Hudson Yards, located in the 5-acre (2.0 ha) Hudson Yards Public Square. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Vessel has 154 flights, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings that stretch from its 50-foot-wide (15 m) base to its 150-foot-wide (46 m) apex, with the total length of the stairs exceeding 1 mile (1.6 km). The structure also has ramps and elevators to make it compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Stephen Ross, the CEO of Hudson Yards' developer Related Companies, said that The Staircase's unusual shape was intended to make the structure stand out like a "12-month Christmas tree." The copper-clad steps, arranged like a jungle gym and modeled after Indian stepwells,would be able to hold up to 1,000 people at a time. Heatherwick said that he intends for visitors to climb and explore the structure as if it were an actual jungle gym. At the top of the structure, visitors could have views of the Hudson River coastline.

Vessel is being designed in conjunction with the Hudson Yards Public Square, designed by Thomas Woltz from Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects. The attached 5-acre (2 ha) public square has 28,000 plants and 225 trees, located on the platform upon which Hudson Yards is built. The plaza's southern side is slated to have a canopy of trees. The southeast entrance is designed to contain a fountain as well. A "'seasonally expressive' entry garden" is meant for the 34th Street–Hudson Yards station's subway entrance at 33rd Street. The plaza is also designed to connect the High Line promenade.

Although Vessel had originally been slated to cost $75 million, the projections were later revised to between $150 and $200 million. Heatherwick attributed the greatly increased price tag to the complexity of building the steel pieces. The pieces of Vessel are being assembled in the commune of Monfalcone in Italy. From there, ships transport the sections of the sculpture to the Hudson River docks.

It was planned that "Vessel" would be the structure's temporary name during construction, and that a permanent name would be determined later."
