Hudson Yards is a new mixed-use development over the west side railroad yards and the Lincoln Tunnel. It includes the Javits Center convention center.
In addition to residential and commercial space, the new development includes The Shops shopping mall, The Shed performing arts center, The Vessel selfie spot, and The Edge skyline viewing platform.
The Shops includes Mercado Little Spain, a wonderful collection of Spanish markets, restaurants and bars by renowned Spanish Chef José Andrés and the Adría Brothers.
New York City’s Biggest Selfie Spot
When it was being built, we wondered what on earth The Vessel was for. This circular stairway to nowhere is a New York style selfie-spot.
Behind it you can see The Shops shopping mall. Mercado Little Spain is in the basement. On the right you can see The Shed performing arts center with its movable roof.
