I haven’t done any research, but someone has probably figured out the amount of people that, at any given time, are a part of the subterranean world of New York City. We are all going somewhere. We are all on the journey towards our destination and destiny, going this way, or, that way.
For a few moments it did seem like we were in cloud city! The Oculus looks out of place from this height.
I wonder if this structure now qualifies as the “location where the most selfies are taken.” Half the fun of being here was watching all the photography going on!
The Oculus leaves many impressions. I can’t get away from the idea of the skeletal remains of a giant, ancient creature that was uncovered in Lower Manhattan. I think I understand a little bit about how Pinocchio might have felt.
The impact of space is interesting to me. The way boundaries, limitations, and, definition is brought to space results in an emotional, almost transcendent experience. Apparently, The Oculus has received mixed reviews, but there is no denying that it does have impact.
Oculus: 1. an eye. 2. Architecture. a circular opening, especially one at the apex of a dome.
It is a stunning space. This is the first of a few images from my time in Lower Manhattan.
