So last week, I decided to get out of the island for a bit and explore somewhere. (Shocking) I heard they just opened a new mall in the Hudson Yards, my mind at 4 am decided “Hey lets go, I wanna check it out!” The best thoughts and ideas happen at 4 am, don’t deny it at all. So I woke up around 9 am and asked my dad to come along with me, (needed someone to take some good Instagram shots of me) and he enjoys city trips! So we took the drive out there and was gazing upon the tall buildings, and was memorized. Finally, after finding parking (which took forever) we walked around and we finally got to the Hudson Yards Mall. We wanted to check it out, because it had just opened about maybe a month ago so we had decided to experience the new Mall.
Here’s the picture inside the Hudson Yards Mall, it had 5 stories and it was super huge. (obviously because there were 5 levels) It was super unique, there was a tiny art museum in the mall I wanted to check out, because I saw a beautiful painting of Audrey Hepburn (My Idol) but sadly it was going to open at 3 pm and we were there at 11 am (struggles but I got to look at it and admire from afar) When walking around we wanted to check out The Vessel, it was super helpful people were helping us find it because, me and my dad circled around the mall to find it (I am super clueless when it comes to directions) So we went outside and saw The Vessel it was amazing, seeing it in real-life was breathtaking.
Stepping outside seeing The Vessel, It was super unique I never saw a building like that and its interesting now a days seeing how people are designing buildings in the city. While on my way to the Hudson Yards I was super upset I didn’t get to take a photo of the building. I like the idea of how they are changing the buildings up and making them more unique and modern. When I saw The Vessel, my dad and I decided to wait on line to go up but I am afraid of heights. (Ask anyone I have a panic attack) but I thought hey! let me go and do it! Experience something new and what not, As we reached our turn we realized we had to pay for our tickets before getting on the line. The line at that point was crazy long so we had to take the long walk of shame. So, in my head like every girl wanting to look cool I asked my dad “Can you take a photo of me behind The Vessel!” So he had taken a photo and it came out sick (Perks of your dad being a videographer he takes rad photographs)
Also, I thought It was really amazing the art that was shown around the mall. I saw some of the artwork but this really stood out to me the most, “We Believe The Future Is Ours” meaning that we decide what our future wants to be and the world is behind us, reaching our goals. When walking around the mall I saw a lot of cool quotes (I wanted to look at all of them and take photos of them) But, in conclusion is was a dope mall, (ew can’t believe I just said “Dope”) next time in the city you should totally check it out!! It was a hip mall, and out of the gate trips are the best I was so glad to escape into the experience and enjoy my time in the city!
