Hudson Yards, dass teurste Immobilienentwicklungsprojekten in der US Geschichte und was es in der 25 Milliaraden Gegend zu sehen gibt

Hudson Yards, the most expensive real estate development projects in US history and what to see in the 25 billion area

When you enter Hudson Yards, your first eye always goes to "Vessel"


Where is Hudson Yards?

You'll find Manhattan's newest attraction on the West Side in Midtown, south of Hell's Kitchen and north of Chelsea. The area stretches from 34th to 29th Street between 10th and 11th Avenue.

"Maybe I don't come to Manhattan enough anymore, but what the hell is this."

—Helen Rosner, a Brooklyn-based writer about Hudson Yards

The obvious precedent is Rockefeller Center, completed in the 1930s, the last comparable development in Midtown Manhattan.

Development is now overwhelming the Chelsea and Hell's Kitchen neighborhoods. Although the project features a recognizable public landmark—a 150-foot-tall honeycomb structure known as the Vessel—it's actually Hudson Yards' buildings that are the masterpiece.

What is there to see, visit and visit in Hudson Yards?

The Vessel

Vessel is a larger-than-life work of art, a huge honeycomb basket made not of wax but of steel stairs.

The idea is that people climb up and down these stairs and get a different view of New York every time they land.

When you enter Hudson Yards, your eye is immediately drawn to Vessel, a $150 million public art installation.

Vessel includes 154 interconnected staircases, totaling nearly 2,500 steps.

When construction of all buildings is completed, 1,700,000 m² of commercial and residential space will be available and 7 hectares of public space.

The Shed

Literally translated as “the shed,” another centerpiece of Hudson Yards is this new performing arts center. It was designed on wheels to allow the building to expand and contract. What happens in The Shed's theaters and galleries will also be high-profile. The Shed will officially open on April 5th. Opening events include Soundtrack of America, which celebrates African-American music, and a limited edition of Anne Carson's play Norma Jeane Baker of Troy, starring Renée Fleming and Ben Whishaw. The most anticipated early performance, however, will be an in-depth concert by Björk, which will take place between May 6th and June 1st.

The shops and restaurants

Retail is a big part of the Hudson Yards experience. The neighborhood has a seven-story shopping complex with high-end jewelry and watch brands like Cartier and Rolex, designer labels like Coach, Gucci, Kate Spade, and fast fashion from Uniqlo and H&M. Smaller, specialized brands like British swimwear line Heidi Klein and Men's basics brand Mack Weldon will also have its first U.S. stores here. The biggest news is the New York debut of Neiman Marcus - a massive store that will anchor the mall with exclusive items, pop-up shops, a salon and multiple restaurants. Another notable opening also has Dallas roots. Forty Five Ten, known for carrying established designers as well as emerging makers, will open its second-largest American store here, selling women's clothing, men's clothing, home goods, accessories and a curated vintage collection. There are also numerous restaurants and other providers to suit every budget.

The stores also include Snark Park, a showroom by design firm Snarkitecture. The installations change periodically, but they all stick to the white and gray color scheme of the second floor (light clothing to really stand out). The opening exhibition, titled Lost and Found, is a series of cylinders of varying heights arranged in a maze-like floor plan.

The new viewing platform "The Edge"

The most exciting attraction at Hudson Yards is a 100th floor observation deck that will offer breathtaking views when completed in 2020. This is not only the highest publicly accessible outdoor deck in the city, but also the highest in the Western Hemisphere. The deck, on the south side of 30 Hudson Yards, juts out from the 65-meter-tall building with views across Manhattan and east to Brooklyn and Queens and west to New Jersey. The 9 meter long glass walls are angled so that visitors can lean out for an even better view. If that's not enough to get your heart pumping, there's also a glass floor so you feel like you're floating above the street. However, the observation deck is not the highest point you have access to. One floor up will be a 930-square-foot dining room and event space operated by the Rhubarb restaurant group. The floor-to-ceiling windows will make watching the sunset an incredible experience.

The final section of the High Line Park

The High Line begins about 20 blocks south of Hudson Yards and splits at 30th Street. From there, the elevated park heads west, offering visitors the opportunity to walk toward the Hudson River rather than along the Hudson River. The opening of Hudson Yards brings the discovery of Plinth, a revolving contemporary art installation on 30th Street. The first piece is a 16 meter high bronze statue of Simone Leigh, which will be on display until September 2020. Closer to the river you'll find Pershing Square Beams - a children's climbing area made up of crossed beams on a padded surface. Back on 30th Street, the High Line also connects the gardens and plaza surrounding Vessel.

Gallery visit

The neighborhood now known as Hudson Yards is not technically limited to the new high-rises. The stretch of 10th Avenue directly south was occasionally referred to as West Chelsea and there are notable galleries a short walk from the new complex. The Heller Gallery, located between West 27th and 28th Streets, recently moved from the Meatpacking District and is known for exhibiting glass sculptures (many artists represented by the gallery now have works at the Met, MoMA and other museums worldwide) . Head south to Kasmin Gallery, on the corner of 10th Avenue and West 27th Street, to see contemporary art and sculpture from a global group of artists.
