In New York, a popular tourist attraction may be closed forever after a teenager committed suicide in front of his family, reports The Daily Beast.
Police said that the teenager jumped from the eighth floor of the futuristic Vessel observation deck, the name of which translates as “ship,” “vessel.” Its construction, designed by the British architect Thomas Heatherwick, cost $ 200 million. From a height of 46 meters, you can enjoy a beautiful view of Manhattan and the Hudson River.
The deceased teenager became the fourth of those who lost their lives on the Vessel in the two years that have passed since the opening of the structure.
Stephen Ross, a billionaire and the head of a company that owns an unusual structure with 80 recreation areas and almost 2.5 thousand steps, says that he can permanently close the building.
