My first visit to Hudson Yards impressed me with generous spaces, reduced clutter, and architectural variety. It has the cohesiveness of a planned development without the monotony.
In addition to the tall towers I featured a couple of days ago, we have this collection of buildings. The horizontal structure to the left is an upscale shopping mall. On the right is the Vessel, an angular sculpture that acts as a giant centerpiece. The puffy building in the center is a performing arts center.
Hudson Yards is a city within Manhattan with residential development, offices, retail, and a subway station. It would work well as a set for an episode of Star Trek. All you have to add are CGI flying cars.

I was at the Vessel with a photography group in 2021, just one month before the fourth suicide.
I like your sunset Vessel photo. Yeah, it was closed when I was there.
