Create an itinerary including The Oculus
Catch a ride at The Oculus, the main station house of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. Another outstanding work of the famed Spanish architect and structure engineer Santiago Calatrava, the train station reopened to the public in 2016, immediately becoming an attraction. The sleek and modern design of its stark white entryway was inspired by the image of a dove flying from the hands of a child, symbolizing hope. Take the architect's advice and visit the airy main hall on a sunny day when the skylight is open. Put The Oculus and other New York City attractions into our New York City trip itinerary builder tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It seems as if it’s placed a little awkwardly, nesting amidst the surrounding buildings, however, it is an amazing addition! When visiting the 911 Memorial you can’t miss it! Someone mentioned it...

  • Incredible architectural experience. This is a do not miss sight and I’d love to see a light show with music from Star Wars.
