A spectacular 3-story barrel-vaulted glass atrium, offering panoramic views of the future site of the World Trade Center and Lower Manhattan at one end and showcasing a majestic bay window with magnificent views of the Hudson River on the other, the central feature of the Winter Garden is the grand semicircular staircase, fashioned of Italian marble, which opens to a grove of 45-foot palm trees.
