A look inside the WTC Oculus transit hub

LOWER MANHATTAN (WABC) -- Architect Santiago Calatrava's Oculus, the centerpiece of the World Trade Center transit hub, opened to the public this month to mixed reviews, but no one can disagree that it is a site to behold. For those who can't make it in person, check out the 360 video below.

Eyewitness News photographer Todd Pierce takes you for a quick tour of the Oculus in the top video.

The massive $4-billion dollar white steel and marble hub opened last Thursday, March 3.

Calatrava designed the Oculus as a symbol of resilience after the September 11th attack.

The Oculus has inspired many Instagrammers to post photos, but the reaction is mixed. You can see some of the photos below.
