The new World Trade Center Transit Hub opened on March 3 2016 replacing the PATH train station that was destroyed during the September 11th 2001 attack. Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed the Hub, which is composed of the train station with a large mezzanine located under the National September 11th Memorial Plaza. The mezzanine is connected to the above ground structure called the Oculus (shown here). According to Calatrava, the Oculus resembles a bird being released from a child’s hand. When complete, The Transit Hub will connect to the New York City Subway system and be home to a 365,000 square foot retail mall.
The Oculus has already become a New York City tourist attraction, with people literally laying on the floor to enjoy the amazing new structure.
