The Oculus (or the giant whales rib cage as I like to call it) is an amazing architectural experience. One which I think is more impressive inside than out, but I am not saying the outside isn't impressive as it is, especially when viewed and...More

The Oculus truly is a modern architectural marvel. It is constantly busy with people traveling as it is a huge travel hub. We really enjoyed the views of the building and "Eataly" which is an authentic Italian Restaurant and grocery store toward the top floors....More

(but interestingly nobody knows the name yet... my uber said something about at "Oculus" but nobody could tell me where that is) Great place to start a stroll through the malls with bad weather. Beautiful for shots in the evening.. with the fog.

This is an extraordinary shopping center plus, but from the outside it is hard to tell. It is an all white sci-fi looking structure with eyelashes! Inside the white marble perfection continues with upscale shops & wonderful natural light. Signage was a bit confusing but...More

We were heading for 9/11 museum and One World Observatory and more or less stumbled over this building when arriving on the "E" metroline from uptown. Very "clean" building from the inside, and spectacular from the outside. Suggest a stop here when visiting Lower Manhattan.

The Oculus is very near the 911 Memorial. It is a subway center and also has many shops around the outside.

What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title
of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular
