Now you have one more reason to join us on our Chelsea Market, Meatpacking District and High Line Food & History Tour: the brand new and opening March 15… HUDSON YARDS!
Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States and the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center. Hudson Yards includes more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, over 100 stores, a collection of restaurants curated by Chef Thomas Keller, The Shed – a new center for artistic invention and 14 acres of public open space.
Here are some photos we took at the opening:
MORE FROM THE HUDSON YARDS WEBSITE:
Hudson Yards is the fulfillment of a remarkable collaboration that includes a talented group of visionaries – planners, architects, engineers, designers, public servants, fashion icons, renowned chefs, business leaders, luminaries and more. They are working in partnership with New York’s development and transportation authorities, and with some of the world’s most iconic retail brands and leading companies – each of whom will call Hudson Yards home.
Prior to Hudson Yards, the area was a relative no man’s land. Railyards, the Javits Center, luxury car dealerships and the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel were pretty much all that you could find here.
Why the Vessel? Some call it “a $200 million basket of staircases to nowhere, perfect for selfies.” And that’s one reason — it’s perhaps one of the flashiest ways to promote the project. But, a less pessimistic view is that stairs are social spaces. Especially in New York City. Architects often build massive staircases as a way to put buildings and institutions up off the ground (think the New York Public Library). But, New Yorkers and visitors use them as places to rest, relax and take in the city. You can now find sittable “stairs” in Times Square, the bleachers set up on the High Line, in Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and more. The developer is hoping the Vessel becomes as iconic as The Eiffel Tower.
