This newly made station construction right next to the Freedom Tower is an insanely looking structure. The arches are huge and criss cross which makes them look like a space ship to me! One must visit place for photography!

We went into the amazing building expecting a food court. We found one cafe where the food range was limited. Because of garlic allergy all they had was a green salad.Toilets are hidden and hard to locate.

This fabulous PATH train station should be on everyone's list of things to see in lower Manhattan. Just across the street from the 9/11 Memorial, it's a soaring bird in flight with a spacious interior that's light, bright, and interesting from every angle.

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.
