Regarding the vessel: This is so exciting! I guess there will be real visible progress every day now. Can't wait for this to rise higher and higher.

They have quickly fixed the street so it can carry the weight of the vessel elements. I expected it to take much much longer.

What some people will experience after over-exerting themselves while climbing the vessel:

Do you guys think that when this area is developed that the Javits Center will really remain here? I mean it will feel so disconnected and wrongly placed in a few years. Moving it away could aso be a chance to reintegrade the Manhattan grid here or allow unique megablock developments here, with lush greenery everywhere. A focal point on the Hudson, NYCs futuristic approach.

Since they just startet preparations for a new $1.5 billion expansion last December, I don't think that the Javits Center will go anywhere in the near future. Why do you think it will feel disconnected? I don't know about the strategic factors (since I'm not into the convention business), but I think at least visually it will be a nice contrast to the towers at Hudson Yards.

I just do not understand how Javits Center is "disconnected" or will be "disconnected" ... if anything it's just going to get even more integrated into the neighborhood as the other towers grow alongside it.

Its an amazing space for large events and the 7 Train station is right there ... its in an ideal location.

If anything, the skyscrapers are more "disconnected" than the Convention Center because they don't allow the general public to use them nearly as much as Javits or MSG. There's always a receptionist/guard station/concierge/doorman checking people in at the towers. Only if they have a retail space or an Observation deck do you get to actually interact with any of the buildings in Manhattan without an appointment.

Looking at the photos above I can't help but remember when 10 HY was first announced. I wasn't optimistic about the project at all. It looked too good to be truth, in the same time the WTC wasn't doing great and I was thinking that a project of such scale appears too promising.
Anyhow, I'm super happy to see 10 HY gracing the skyline of New York with its beautiful triangular crown. The sculpture is absolutely splendid and it's amazing to see it making progress.
