Photographer's Note

Outside of the Oculus there are lots of photo opportunities. Focusing on a narrow section of the façade, I found people relaxing outside, and noticed nice reflections in the tall, skinny windows. I also ate my lunch in this spot before I took some photos.


As I’ve mentioned before, the Oculus was designed by famed architect Santiago Calatrava. It’s the third largest transportation hub in NYC, connecting eleven subway lines, the PATH train to New Jersey, a ferry terminal, and several buildings in the new World Trade Center complex.

Entering at street level, you find yourself on a balcony overlooking the concourse below. There are identical balconies on the east and west sides of the structure. The next level down is a mezzanine, allowing access to certain subway lines, and also filled with retail shops. Going down one more time, you reach the enormous concourse level. There are more shops, and, at the west end, access to the PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson) train.

Sometimes there are also art exhibits and cultural events on the concourse level. Mostly it’s just a large, open space, with people moving around, and, of course, taking photos. :-)

In the WS are two more views.
