Off in the Distance, 59th Street

Central Park South
Photo by myself at Columbus Circle, around 59th Street and Broadway.

A sculpture of Christopher Columbus stands atop an obelisk in the middle of Columbus Circle. This entire area has been revamped and landscaped in the last few years.

It's pretty amazing that Manhattan manages to have a rotary in the middle of the city. This one allows traffic to navigate the intersection of several streets - Broadway, Central Park West, 59th and 60th Streets.


Happy weekend everyone!

Hi Unseen Rajasthan
I like your new site quite a bit. I don't have much advice for tourism sites. It looks fully equipped!

Ha, TC. True.
The nice thing about this rotary is that you can sit around the fountain in the middle. Usually rotaries are just for traffic and aren't habitable.

It's quite a space to be in the middle of.

Thanks Lily!
