This is a very interesting place to shop, with many high end retailers. Much larger than it looks on the outside.

This station and public space is a great addition to NYC's infrastructure. If you're at the WTC or WTC memorial, take the time to walk over and enjoy this massive, modern transit center brilliantly disguised as a public open space.

The Oculus is a very unique building. While it wouldn't necessarily warrant a solo visit, it is a great add-on for people visiting the 9/11 memorial or museum, NYSE, One World Trade Center, or anyone passing through the World Trade Center transportation hub.

From the outside it looks like a fish skeleton, on the inside it feels like a huge temple, rising from the ashes of Ground Zero. It houses the 9/11 museum, upscale retail outlets, and serves as the transportation hub for what has become a world...More

The Westfield in London is a huge amazing mall. I was pleased to see one in NYC. Great quality stores. The inside architecture is as impressive as the outside.

The inside is a mall with shops and restaurants you might find anywhere. This mall is housed under a soaring roof that from the outside looks like a dove in flight with wings stretching out. Very eye catching structure at Ground Zero.

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.
