Inside the Oculus

Inside the #Oculus in #downtown #Manhattan, #NYC at night, completely deserted and with only one of its #security guards watching over the main floor.
The Oculus, also known as #WorldTradeCenter Transportation Hub is one of the main hubs in #NewYorkCity connecting most of the subway and #NewJersey transit lines, so seeing it almost completely empty is a unique picture! It was build as part of the #WTC rebuilding efforts, with an amazing and unique #interior design – something you have to visit when you’re in the #city!

Like a Phoenix from the ashes

Is there any picture that stands more for #NewYork than a yellow #NYC #cab in front of the #WorldTradeCenter, with the #Oculus “rising like a Phoenix from the ashes”? This description is true now as it was after 9/11, the city is finally recovering from the pandemic and getting back to its old glory. Took this shot in the early morning hours with some nice sunlight shining through the urban canyons of #Manhattan’s #skyscrapers.
