This transportation hub is an urban design masterpiece. Designed as part of Central Park in 1905 at the main gate. Statute of Columbus and an oft-filmed center fountain sit in the center of the circle. Time Warner building, Shops at Columbus Circle, Museum of Art & Design and Central Park South all sit on this circle. Subways ABCD1 all serve the busy stop.

Great circular plaza located on the southwestern corner of Central Park. People from multiple tribes (Gogobot reference) gravitate to the circle to witness random performing street arts, shop at prestigious shops, and take in the views of the photogenic monument and surrounding architecture. Come at night to witness Columbus Circle when it's most colorful.

Located at the intersection of Broadway and Eighth Avenue, Columbus Circle marks the border between midtown and the upper west side. The main landmark is the giant globe at the center of the circle. At the southeast corner of Central Park you can also see the memorial to the Battleship Maine (whose mysterious 1898 explosion precipitated the Spanish American War). A number of clothing boutiques like Armani Exchange can also be found here.

The Columbus Circle has a lot to offer to the locals and tourists alike. It has great shopping for a full wallet (you can’t use your maxed-out credit card there though), it offers great dining, it has Whole Foods store, it’s home for Jazz at Lincoln Center… and it’s just a great building to enter on a freezing or steaming hot day to catch your breath and collect your thoughts.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

Where Broadway tangentially bumps into Central Park is Columbus Circle, a beautiful area full of life. From the horse carriages to the Shops at Columbus Circle, the area is full of life. The statue of Christopher Columbus serves as a landmark for the area, as well as a nice place to take some photos.

On the one hand this place is very nice with a Whole Foods in the basement, high end shopping throughout and some high end restaurants...thing is, this place is so not NYC...at best this place belongs in Westchester though it reminds me more of Dallas or Atlanta. They have Art events frequently which I do like...

This is where you'll find your cabbies and horse-drawn carriages lined up...there's a couple statues and it's the entrance to Central Park. Lots of people around and good photo spot! Time Warner Center has shops and restaurants.

Columbus Circle abuts the lower part of Central Park. If I'm going running and need something, there are a couple of running stores nearby. Watch the traffic, which seems to come from all directions.
