In 2019, the Vessel became the centerpiece of New York City's Hudson Yards neighborhood. Standing at 150 feet tall, with a honeycomb-looking facade, the Vessel cost an estimated $200 million to create, as Insider previously reported.
When it opened, the Vessel was supposed to be Manhattan's freshest, most exciting art installation, adding the final touch to Hudson Yards, a $25 billion development that became the most expensive in US history, per a 2019 CBS News report.
If all went according to plan, the structure would be "to New York City what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris," Jeff Blau, the CEO of Related Companies, the developer behind Hudson Yards, told the outlet.
