Heavy Lifting / Featured Fountain

Recently, a massive crane barge has appeared next to the Intrepid at Pier 84, along with some very interesting cargo.

Our initial assumption was that these complex objects would be part of an exhibit for the nearby Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, but word on the street is they have an even grander purpose!

These pieces are in fact rumored to be prefabricated sections of Vessel, a monstrous sculpture that will be the centerpiece of the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards project!

If you happen to stop by in hopes of viewing some truly heavy lifting, you may also consider visiting our weekly featured water fountain, located nearby on Pier 84.

This fountain offers NYC’s famous crystal clear water…

…and is also located just West of a very fun looking water park!
