NEW YORK (AP) — New York's $25 billion Hudson Yards development is open to the public.
People lined up Friday to climb the 2,500 steps to the top of a massive sculpture named Vessel.
It's the visual centerpiece of a complex of high-rises on Manhattan's West Side with luxury commercial and residential space, including about 100 shops and restaurants.
CNN's Anderson Cooper hosted the inaugural ceremony, which included Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer and other New York elected officials.
CNN will be a tenant at Hudson Yards along with its parent company, WarnerMedia.
Also at the opening was developer Stephen Ross, whose company, Related, partnered with Oxford Properties Group to build Hudson Yards.
Half of the 28-acre mini-city by the Hudson River is completed. The rest will be done by 2025.
