HUDSON YARDS, Manhattan — The centerpiece sculpture at a massive development on Manhattan’s west side has been closed to the public.

The developer is looking at suicide prevention efforts after three deaths in the past year.

The Vessel is a 150-foot-high sculpture in the shape of an inverted beehive made up of stairways and platforms in the Hudson Yards development.

It has been the site of three suicides, the most recent of which was on Monday.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Related Companies was talking to psychiatrists and others about how to reduce the potential for future deaths.
