Contest to rename Hudson Yard's 'The Vessel'

MANHATTAN (WABC) -- A contest is now underway to name the giant winding staircase at the center of the city's newest $25 billion development at Hudson Yards.

It's now referred to as "The Vessel."

Some of the names suggested so far include Stairy McStairface, The Hive - as it does look like a honeycomb -- and King Kong's Jungle Gym.
