Hi friends, welcome back! I have a glitzy Christmas post for you today. When I strolled the High Line and ended at Hudson Yards, I went inside the mall and saw them decorating for Christmas. I noticed lights strung over every railing and escalator, and hot air balloons and Christmas trees hanging from the ceiling. The lights weren’t turned on at that point, but I couldn’t wait to come back and see how beautiful it would look with all the lights twinkling!
Outside the mall stands The Vessel strung in lights and surrounded by lit trees and hot air balloons. The Vessel contains over 154 flights of stairs, 80 landings, and just under 2,500 steps.
From outside you can see how bright and decked out the inside of the mall is. The theme is “Shine Bright” at Hudson Yards and the decorations are sponsored by Wells Fargo.
I walked in and classic Christmas music played while over two million lights twinkled. What a dazzling sight!!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so lit before, I LOVED it!
I went up the escalator to the second floor to see the impressive 32 feet tall hot air balloon. The lights change color and it’s absolutely beautiful!
This mall has a lot of ritzy stores so this décor seemed pretty fitting.
Hope you enjoyed this dazzling tour of Hudson Yards! I’d highly recommend visiting and seeing the lights for yourself, it’s so mesmerizing and beautiful. I could’ve watched the hot air balloon change colors all day. This is one of my new favorite Christmas decor spots in the city, and I’d definitely add it to the top of your NYC Christmas List!
