The Vessel tourist attraction in New York City shuts down after another suicide death, about 2 months after reopening from a closure prompted by similar deaths.

The Vessel closed in January after 3 similar deaths occurred on its premises and reopened in May with new rules aimed at preventing suicides.

But critics were skeptical that new rules would be a better prevention tactic than simply raising the barriers along the walkways.“The only way to prevent future tragedies is to raise the height of the barriers,” Lowell D. Kern, the chairman of the local community board, told the Times in May.

Kimberly Winston, spokeswoman for the Hudson Yards, said the death Thursday was under investigation and that the Vessel has closed to visitors.“We are heartbroken by this tragedy and our thoughts are with the family of the young person who lost their life,” Winston said.

The Vessel opened to the public in 2019, offering residents and tourists views of the western part of Manhattan and the Hudson River. It was designed by Thomas Heatherwick and the Heatherwick Studio and was initially free to the public, but now guests above the age of 5 are charged $10 after the first hour The Vessel opens. headtopics.com
