World Financial Center (WFC)
World Financial Center (WFC) Review
The four towers of this complex, which range from 34 to 51 stories high, are topped with different geometric ornaments designed by Cesar Pelli and serve as company headquarters for the likes of American Express and Dow Jones. The sides of the buildings facing the World Trade Center towers were damaged during the September 11 attacks, but have been fully restored. The glass-dome Winter Garden atrium is the main attraction here; it's a pleasant open space that hosts music and dance performances, as well as a display of architectural plans for the WTC site and a selection of stores and restaurants. At the south end of the WFC complex, the South Bridge footbridge connects One WFC to the intersection of Liberty and Washington streets. The windows on the north side of the footbridge provide a view of the World Trade Center site. On weekdays, a rotating roster of food trucks park outside that can provide tasty picnic fare to eat in nearby Hudson River Park.
