Hudson Yards Vessel is suicide magnet

Who could have seen that coming?

First suicide. Family mystified; no note.

I bet the DL has some theories.

The rugby star looked very pretty.

The jersey alone is a dead giveaway it was CTE.

Three suicides in a year, especially in a year like 2020, makes it a "suicide magnet"?

by Anonymousreply 501/12/2021

Well, they have closed it indefinitely.

What do you think a jury would say?

[quote] What do you think a jury would say?

Well, if the jury were composed of Guardian journalists they'd say the building is guilty of murder because all cities are sexist because skyscrapers look like penises

It's so fucking ugly. The first time I saw it I wanted to kill myself, too.

by Anonymousreply 801/13/2021

I'm confused.

Is the spiral staircase inside or outside of the building?

by Anonymousreply 901/13/2021

I would always try to find ways to kill myself, but then I realized to commit suicide in NYC is redundant.

by Anonymousreply 1001/13/2021

I find this odd, because it has been known that this kind or architecture attracts suicides. In certain states is actually illegal for hotel atria, unless suicide proof. It only drives home just how isolated architects are from the human behavior.

This sucks--suiciders ruin everything.

The structure is gorgeous, with the stunning inside staircases based upon some ancient Indian temples.

Now they will have to put plexiglass barriers to prevent people from jumping off. It'll look ugly.

Bitch stole my act!

Is it just a stairway? To where? Hell?

by Anonymousreply 1401/13/2021

They’ll have to dismantle, raise and redesign the railings twice as high to the tune of $100 million or so. They didn’t see this coming and I’m guessing it’s not getting the crowds they expected because the mall is a flop.

Conveniently located in Midtown. Jumpers don't have to walk halfway across the Brooklyn or George Washington Bridges.

He was pushed

But we heard Hudson Yards is a place to die for!!!!!!!

R17 Truth be told, Humpty Dumpty was pushed.

by Anonymousreply 1901/13/2021

R9, if ONLY there was a way to see that the structure is a staircase with no inside or outside. If ONLY we could see pictures somewhere of this obscure, unknown structure.

Then they are idiots. The architects should be charged with criminal negligence. It was foreseeable and it was preventable. Can you imagine if someone designed a car with such negligence?

by Anonymousreply 2101/13/2021

Maybe they ran into the fabulous Elizabeth Chambers and were so humiliated by their ordinariness, they went over.

iPod song - "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly

It's a shame because it really is a beautiful structure. My sister and I went there a year ago last November. We got about halfway up and had to turnaround. It was scary. I can see, though, why someone may want to jump. There's something about the feeling of unrestricted access to air, if you will.

R4 What is CTE?

by Anonymousreply 2401/13/2021

R4 Oh I see, never mind, it's the effects of multiple traumatic brain injuries. Yeah, that's a good theory.

Any pics?

I can understand why. I work there and the mall is a dud. It was built for rich people, not regular folks.

by Anonymousreply 2701/13/2021

Totally agree about the mall, R27. I'm not a jet-setting fashionista nor do I read Vogue. I didn't recognize many of the stores in that mall.

Ironically, this song is played over and over at the site.
