This is in the subway stop formerly named "World Trade Center."
It still connects directly to the site, but the part of the station closer has been re-built.
A viewing platform has been set up in the closer area to view the "Big Lie Hole."
It appears that the mosaic below was not destroyed or damaged and it dates from before the attack.
All over the walls there, single Eyes peer out at you.
The mosaic below is an example.
Every subway station, or most in Manhattan, have a theme. The theme under the former Trade Towers are these Illuminati-style eyes.
These particular mosaics were recovered and remounted back into the walls,
since they were also the symbols of that subway station before the attacks of September 11, 2001.
This Artwork is built into the floor. It is surrounded by a guard rail so you can't walk onto it. It shows a map of the globe with an all-seeing eye at the center. Someone walked on it to get this picture.
Oculus is a constellation of stone and glass mosaics in the underground labyrinth of interconnected subway stations of lower Manhattan. Over three hundred mosaic eyes, drawn from a photographic study of more than twelve hundred young New Yorkers, are set into the white tile walls of the World Trade Center/Park Place/Chamber Street Stations. The work’s centerpiece is a large exquisitely detailed, elliptical glass and stone mosaic floor (38’8” x 20’8”) at the heart of the Park Place Station. The continents of the earth, interwoven with the City of New York amidst an ultramarine pool, surround a large eye in the middle of the mosaic. The mosaic is at once a vision of the world, a reflecting pool of water and a representation New York City in its proper geographical orientation.
The work’s detailed renderings of the eye – the most telling, fragile and vulnerable human feature – offer a profound sense of intimacy within a public place. Together, the images create a sense of unity and flow: animating, orienting and humanizing the station. Oculus invites a dialogue between the site and those who move through it.

Good artwork, but kind of creepy.

IMHO the alien face crop cirle is the most obvious human made crop "circle" ever. The mere fact that humans can make such crop circles leaves me with no doubt that most if not all crop circles are human made.

I think its just coincidence, throughtout history the eye has been a symbol of intelligence and power, so I think its just coincidence that its there.
And of course there will be some kind of station for a place as big as the WTC.
