28 WORLD TRADE CENTER
The Lower Manhattan skyline is graced by One World Trade Center, whose top floor — 104 stories up — is the same height as the original twin towers.
But with its antenna, it’s the Western Hemisphere’s tallest structure. Towers three and four stand high along the WTC’s east side, while tower two is set to rise in the coming years.
NATIONAL 9/ 11 MEMORIAL & MUSEUM
The memorial is a large public plaza with two massive waterfalls
marking the footprints of the original WTC twin towers, which were destroyed on the morning of 11 September 2001. Nearby is the entrance to the subterranean museum that reflects on America’s most devastating terrorist attack
through fascinating exhibits, artifacts and personal stories. For the best view, head to the elevated
Liberty Park to the south.
WTC TRANSPORTATION HUB
This grand transit station opened in 2016, introducing architect Santiago Calatrava’s abstract vision of a bird in flight t o the WTC’s 16 acres. Named the Oculus after its arced, glass roof, the hub draws natural light to its lower levels, where visitors can board subways, shop, dine and traverse a network of bright underground corridors.
