If you love public art, innovative design, and urban adventure, then there's one New York City attraction that you shouldn't miss: the High Line. Escape the city's hustle and bustle on this rejuvenating High Line hike, where you stroll an elevated park with well-tended gardens, works of public art, and views of the skyline and Hudson River. Along the way, pass Vessel, an interactive artwork at Hudson Yards.
Built as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project, the Vessel is 'New York’s Staircase' – a honeycomb-shaped structure that soars to incredible heights and offers amazing city views.
Climb to the landing points of British designer Thomas Heatherwick's controversial interactive sculpture, learn about the project in the center of Hudson Yards, and explore New York's highlights on foot with the self-guided tour in a mobile app.
See the sights of Midtown NYC from three different perspectives!
