NYC Travel Guide: Vessel Hudson Yards
I'm. Jan your local New York City guide and welcome to whatever. This is it's, technically, called the vessel temporarily. But. We are here in Hudson Yards and this is the ultimate guide to visiting the vessel skipping, the digital line and getting tickets. In person, without waiting, too long and. Everything. You need to know but, keep, watching until the end to find out a little bit about the sneaky photo policy, the biggest, lie about, this view, and. How, to visit and see, me next Sunday don't, forget to subscribe and, keep watching I. Made. A video about the ugly truth of the vessel and it did so well everyone requested more information, about how to get tickets so keep, watching and I'm also going to start like breaking, it down all the numbers right, now, 150. Feet tall, 154. Interconnected. Staircases, 16. Stories, up 80 landings. 2500. Individual, step fun mile of vertical, climb 25, billion dollars for all of Hudson yard 200 million dollars just for, vessel so you're probably wondering when, is the best time to visit I've been here for sunrise during, the day sunset, and at night and I thought this sunset would be the best time where there would be a gorgeous glow you know you saw all those Instagram, photos but, I think they were all edited, because the sunset here is not, that great the Sun does set behind Jersey, right there and you. See a little bit of a golden glow but. Not that much so, since. It is so crowded I highly, recommend you come here at sunrise when there are less crowds. Insert. A joke about Jersey even though it's great. So. Let's talk about tickets, they make it seem like it is sold out for weeks and it is impossible to get tickets there is a digital, line online, where, it opens at 8 a.m. this morning at, 8 a.m. I went online to, get tickets I am Number, 3,600. Seven in lime that is ridiculous. So instead of doing that come, here not right now at like 11:00 a.m. but come here at sunrise come early, they technically open the ticket booth at 8:00 a.m. but, the guys around here constantly, tell me that they don't really show up until about 9:00 a.m. so, come, here at 9:00 a.m. get tickets in person, that is the best way to get tickets what was my experience of coming here and climbing it and was, it worth it so, I came here around sunset it was pretty crowded but I was excited I was like I'm gonna give this a chance I'm gonna really, keep my mind open and, see, how it is it, was pretty fun at first you know you're climbing you're not, sure which way to go and I really thought thought it was interesting that you could climb in any direction choose, your own adventure there's. No one way to get to the top except, if you take the elevator there's only one way but, it was, really. Exciting interesting. As you're climbing different. Views but when you get to the top it's a little disappointing. I got. To the top and was surprised at the view that, everyone says is there was, it really there there's no remarkable. View as they, say on their website it is a landmark, with the remarkable, views but, it's. Not really it's just. It's. Just Jersey, it's just that, you know people they just they got it they got to keep walking it's New York the. Views are not remarkable, and it's, unfortunate. But I think when you go to the observatory deck, which is coming here very soon, at Hudson, Yards I think that view will be a lot, better. You. You. Probably notice I'm not super, enthusiastic about this and I am super honest when I am enthusiastic, but, this one as a local, perspective I'm gonna be honest and say it's not my favorite place to visit you're in Manhattan here, in New York City in general I don't. Think you should come here and have high expectations. But, yeah you can come here check off the box say you took a photo here it's, good, for photos I think that three best photos are from, the ground looking, at it if you do decide to climb it from the bottom looking, up and then from the top looking down those, are the three shots you're gonna get don't, be too excited about any views because there are none even if you hear the quotes from the designers, themselves.
Everyone. Has a very interesting perspective on this place so I'm just gonna insert their clothes here and you can hear what they have to say. Honestly. My favorite part of this has to be the mall I know I was surprised too it's actually, a really beautifully, designed mall even though the shops are very high-end, and it's skewed to a very luxury. Clientele, there, are some really amazing, cafes. And, food, a whole food part especially a Spanish themed and it's. Just beautiful to walk around great, atmosphere when. It's not super crowded so definitely come here earlier the, photo policy, people, criticized the photo policy so much they actually had to change it because so many people did not know that, they had, the rights because, this is a private, piece of artwork and they are selling tickets even though they are free to. See it that, any photo here, of this private piece of artwork is something, that they owned so, if you come here take a photo they officially. Got the, rights to take, that photo and use it which is crazy and something that they should at least let, people know before, they come to visit and they have finally taken that away but, it's a bit sneaky or anything thank you for taking this tour with me a vessel, here in Hudson Yards I will be here next Sunday so come meet up with me say, hi don't.
