Oculus vs. Grand Central

I was recently in New York City for a She Has Hope fundraising event and had Sunday to do some photo-wandering. However, as it was 17°f (-8°c) I decided I would do most of my photography indoors. Someone had recommended that I visit the new World Trade Center Transportation Hub, known as the Oculus. The thought occurred to me that this was a sort of modern counterpart to the historic Grand Central Station transportation hub, and so I set out to do a photographic essay on the contrasts of the two.
