Photo of the Week: Oculus

New York, USA

I finally made it down to the new World Trade Center Path station.  Earlier this year the downtown transportation hub finally opened to the public after years of construction and delays.  The highly anticipated structure was designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, to resemble a a bird-in-flight.  The stunning $4 Billion dollar building opened to mix reviews.  The large open area in the center is known as the Oculus, and connects the train station, the September 11th Memorial plaza, and the many high-end retail shops.  Inside the main hall, the sun pours through the steel and glass design giving the feel of an open space.  Have you been inside the new World Trade Center Path station?  Do you think it was worth the hefty price tag?

Every week, I’ll share a photo with you from my adventures around the world and at home.  Most of my photos have little or no post processing.  If you would like to see more, please click the Follow button.
