Fulton Center is quickly becoming a main attraction in New York City’s Manhattan. Located in the Financial District in Lower Manhattan just a few blocks north of Wall Street, Fulton Street is home to the brand new Fulton Center, which links 11 different subway lines, a passageway to PATH, and includes some incredible eateries and vendors.

Subway stations galore!

This location is a dream come true for thousands of daily commuters. With five subway stations in the hub, Fulton Center serves the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, J, Z, R, N, and W lines, making the lives of the 9-5 workers easier and more seamless. With the growing popularity of so many businesses and corporations moving their offices into the downtown and lower Manhattan area, the construction of Fulton Center is perfectly timed.

The other great part of this station? It holds a connecting pathway to the PATH services, so if you’re heading to New Jersey, this is an easy transfer for you as well! Talk about convenience!

A brand new sight to behold

Newly opened in November 2014, this location is now a main draw for tourists. In the center of the hub is a glass oculus at 53 feet in diameter, which is a feature that draws people in just for the beautiful imagery it creates. The station is constructed with close to one thousand aluminum panels that capture the daylight throughout the whole year which then reflects that light throughout the station. Additionally, the station is the first to have digital signage throughout the center, allowing advertisers and event promoters to share their message with the over 300,000 people that visit this location on a daily basis. Combined, the lighting effects and the high traffic elevate this destination as a must-see for any New Yorker.

Make sure you come hungry and ready to shop!

Another great feature beyond the transportation purposes is the inclusion of a great deal of vendors and restaurants. A New York City staple, Shake Shack on the second level is almost always packed and a highly trafficked location for commuters and tourists alike. Other popular eateries include Dunkin Donuts, Wasabi Sushi & Bento, Pressed Juicery, and others, so no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’re bound to find something that will satisfy your cravings!

Close to so many destinations!

One of the reasons this center was constructed in the first place was because the neighborhood was greatly congested, and commuters and tourists would get bundled and bumped together, which greatly affected the overall reception of the area. With so many sites in this neighborhood, like the view of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, and the South Street Seaport, adding to this congestion, MTA decided to create the transportation hub to ensure this part of Manhattan would remain a top destination for tourists.

Because this location is also within walking distance of the One World Trade Center, 9/11 Museum and Memorial, the Oculus, and Westfield Mall, New Yorkers can now utilize the many underground pathways to get to and from these destinations, relieving a great deal of the traffic above ground.
So be sure to make Fulton Center part of your places to see list, and check out all the cool digital signage and incredible eateries and experience just how easy it is now to get around thanks to the new Fulton Center!
