Sculpture Among Skyscrapers

Vessel, Hudson Yards - New York, New York

Vessel, Hudson Yards – New York, New York

With 154 flights of stairs, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings, the 16-story Vessel is a large structure. It has to be when surrounded by giants. What appears as a colossal sculpture looks just right from this perspective.

Of course, it’s more than just a static piece of art. You can interact with it by climbing its stairs. Unfortunately, as mentioned in the previous posts, it’s currently closed.

I framed this at the widest 28mm equivalent with the GFX 50S II and applied perspective correction in post. The resulting conglomeration of structures has a sculptural quality beyond the central bronze-colored Vessel.
