Went into this building not knowing what it was at all, surprised to find a mall inside. Being really tired from the city noise and the warmth this was a great place to walk around and feel relaxed. It didn't feel crowded at all, the bathrooms were clean, and the shops were fun and interesting.

The architecture of this place is amazing! It looks like an alien spaceship or maybe looks like a dinosaur! there is a shopping mall inside as well as a train station! Worth taking a look.

Arquitetura moderna por fora e por dentro. De longe o lugar mais espetacular que fomos em NY. Posso descrever como um momento de sensações múltiplas! Cor, sons, cheiro e visual. Tudo misturado e impactante. Imperdível! É uma estação de metrôs e trens, juntamente com lojas de luxo. De lá de dentro tem entrada para o One World Observatory, outro lugar que não se pode deixar de ir. (fotos @ckerstinlellis).

Modern architecture on the outside and inside. By far the most spectacular place we have been in NY. I can describe it as a moment of multiple sensations! Color, sounds, smell and look. All mixed and shocking. Unmissable! It is a subway station and trains along with luxury shops. From there it has entrance to the One World Observatory, another place that can not be missed.

The whole complex is amazing, but the need to turn it into a huge shopping mall disgusts me. Does everything has to be commercialized? I was on Sep. 11 there when it happened, and I really don't get it.

Visiting the Oculus is worth the detour - stunning architecture and fun to visit all in the area - shops and subway station, restaurants in the vicinity. Don't miss it.
