That would be an amazing place for a morning jog! Once around Hudson Yards, up and back down the stairs of Vessel. All while being surrounded by trees, shops and skyscrapers!

Thanks! It's my pleasure...

What I think will be awesome here when completed, is as you steadily approach the base to enter, you'll get a breathtaking and dizzying view as each floor is successively cantilevered

I was thinking the same thing, but I wonder if they're going to charge a fee to get into the basket. It's a bit of a tourist trap so I assume they'll charge something like $5 to $10. That would make it a pretty expensive daily jog.

I don't think its going to cost anything. Its part of the "public amenity" section of the contract letting Hudson Yards go forward in the first place.

They should leave the porta-potty there permanently as people climbing this ting may need to go when they get to the top.

Yeah the most use of the elevator will be people going DOWN to use the restroom.

Yeah, this Vessel looks odd in the renders, but I think it will truly become a focus in the area like intended, and a massive tourist attraction. With the high line it may even rival times square, or surpass it, once the entire Hudson Yards project is done.

Who the hell is going to pay to climb the structure? Is it worth the climb? The view is special?

I think this is more a piece of sculpture to decorate square than a legendary monument.. But im open to another opinions and different points of view..
People want to visit the eifel tower because of its symbolic value and for being a legendary monument but mainly because it have a unique view over the entire city of Paris. How is this going to be attractive to tourists?
