We are an iconic New York City destination that offers visitors, whether from around the block or around the world, a unique and memorable experience with every trip. Our 16-acre campus is a gateway to Lower Manhattan, New York City, and the greater New York and New Jersey region, with a mix of public spaces and parks, eateries, retailers, and office towers, plus educational and historical points of interest.
The World Trade Center is home to the Oculus, One World Trade Center, 3 World Trade Center, 4 World Trade Center, 7 World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, One World Observatory, Liberty Park, and the future Saint Nicholas National Shrine, Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, 2 World Trade Center, and 5 World Trade Center. All campus stakeholders, tenants, and business partners work together to honor the campus' history and preserve its status as an international landmark.
The World Trade Center is owned and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Founded in 1921, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey builds, operates, and maintains many of the most important transportation and trade infrastructure assets in the country. The agency’s network of aviation, ground, rail, and seaport facilities is among the busiest in the country, supports more than 550,000 regional jobs, and generates more than $23 billion in annual wages and $80 billion in annual economic activity. The Port Authority receives no tax revenue from either the State of New York or New Jersey or from the City of New York. The agency raises the necessary funds for the improvement, construction or acquisition of its facilities primarily on its own credit.
