Officially open to the public for nearly two weeks, the centerpiece of New York City’s newest neighborhood needs a name. Known best as “Vessel,” the bronzed steel and concrete sculpture designed by Thomas Heatherwick was never given an official title. Earlier this year, developer Related Companies told 6sqft that “Vessel” was just a placeholder until the public experienced the installation. And with hundreds of selfies taken at the site since its opening on March 15, Related is now asking the public to rename the 150-foot honeycomb-like structure.

Have any ideas?

Update 3/19/19: Related Companies will revise the language of its terms and conditions after facing backlash for its peculiar photo policy regarding the Vessel, Bloomberg reported Monday. “The intent of the policy is to allow Hudson Yards to amplify and reshare photos already shared on individual social channels through our website and social channels,” a spokesperson told Bloomberg.

New York City’s latest landmark is fit for Instagram, its bronzed steel and concrete perfectly popping in photographs against its glassy super tall neighbors. But to take photos of the free and public centerpiece of Hudson Yards, known as the “Vessel,” isn’t actually so free. According to the terms and conditions for the sculpture, written by Hudson Yards developer Related Companies and found online, photos and video footage taken of the Vessel belong to the company, not the photographer.

The sleek 910-foot-tall tower at 15 Hudson Yards has held the attention of real estate and skyline watchers since construction began last spring. Just listed for $32 million is penthouse 88B, the first of the building’s four penthouses to arrive on the market. The suitably stunning 5,161-square-foot duplex home sits on the building’s 88th floor near its crown. And even in a city filled with penthouses, several things make this one unique.
