Horribly damaged, just awful destruction took place here during the attack On the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001. The huge glass structure was blown to pieces.
The Atrium was masterfully rebuilt with 2,000 panes of glass and reopened in September, the following year at a cost of many millions.
The huge palm trees brought in greatly contribute to the exotic feel of the Atrium.
The Winter Garden serves as a venue for art exhibits, concerts and shows.
In the warm weather, there are restaurants all around that offer outdoor seating overlooking the riverside.
A nice place to visit ...
