NEW YORK CITY | Part of the new Hudson Yards development, Vessel is comprised of 154 intricately interconnecting flights of stairs- almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings. It’s really quite spectacular.

Locals are mixed on it, and Vessel is actually only a temporary name. Nicknames include the Schwarma, Pineapple Thing, M.C. Escher Stairs, Staircase McStaircaseface, Meat Tornado, The Rat’s Nest, Chalice of the Privileged, The Escalator to Nowhere.

There is no place to sit on the structure, unless you block one of the 154 staircases. You have to schedule an appointment to visit. It’s brought up a very interesting debate between private and public property rights, but there’s no denying that it looks rather cool.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
