An Uber driver recommended this to us so we thought we would pay a visit after visiting the 9/11 Museum & site. This is supposed to resemble a Dove - Meaning Peace. If you go up to the top of the One World Trade Centre...More

The Oculus is basically a large roof over an empty space surrounded by a shopping mall - and yet as such it’s very cool! The structure is a hub for the MTA subway and is basically at Ground Zero. Best site ever? No. Worth a...More

Such a great looking building inside and out. Got a little confused in trying to find somewhere to have a drink as there only seems to be one coffee shop and no where to sit so we went else where.

Stunning like all his buildings. Has to be seen to be believed. Hard to believe it houses a high end shopping centre and transportation hub. Based on the concept of a spine the building is totally unique.

This was being built on our last visit so we had to go visit it. It is a marvelous piece of architecture as well as a functioning building. Fabulous.

It is a great expanse in a train station/shopping mall near WTC and downtown Wall Street. To me it is a statement of "Look what we can do."

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

The N,Q and R trains run North to South. Get off at Cortland Street and follow the signs to the World Trade Center. It looks like a giant fish spine. You can't miss it.
