Columbus Circle Tours

4 Reviews
Columbus Circle
Columbus Circle, New York City’s only traffic circle, is indeed named for Christopher Columbus. The monument was erected on the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in America. His statue rises tall on a column at the center of the busy street circle. It is the place which all official distances in New York City are measured from. 

Aside from its key role in directing New York’s traffic, it stands at the base of Time Warner Center. The glass skyscraper is home to the Time Warner corporation’s headquarters and is one of the city’s best shopping centers. It also contains the Jazz at Lincoln Center and New York’s CNN offices. Central Park is only footsteps away — in fact, the circle was initially designed as a grand entrance to the famous park. Grass, plants, trees, benches, and fountains were added to the circle in 2005, giving it a more park-like appearance itself.

Practical Info

Columbus Circle is situated at the intersection of Eighth Avenue, Broadway, , Central Park West, and Central Park South (West 59th Street.) An entrance to Central Park is nearby. The closest Subway station is 59th Street - Columbus Circle.
Address: Columbus Cir, New York City, New York, USA, USA
