Very intriguing architecture...looks like an eagle about to fly or touching down... when I learned about the money NY spent to have this one built makes u wonder what is it? The moment I saw it for the first time I can’t comprehend why this cost billions of dollars ...but once u are inside it, I became speechless...goosebumps...and wow!!! The solid marbles that was used, the clean lines of architecture, it feels like a hollowed ground, a cathedral, zen like feeling will engulf u...this will last forever!!

Built above a subway station, this is a tourist attraction in itself. From the design of the architecture to the floor tiles, it a sight to behold. There is an abundance of white which gives The Oculus a very clean feeling. While the exterior of the building is a work of art, the inside is even more so.

Amazing breathtaking experience as you step out the subway station into the huge Oculus. Like its name suggests,it is a stunning eye-like design! It is basically a mall with tons of fancy shops and some classy restaurants and coffee shops.Situated below the new World Trade Centre.

After visiting the 9 11 memorial, we passed through the oculus on our way to the subway station located nearby. The construction itself is massive, architecturally speaking very impressive and spacious, but in my opinion is a punch in the eye. Inside there is a lot of free space and shops are here and there, I did not see a real concept (although I am sure there is). Overall interesting to see once, but that's about it.
