At the intersection of W 59th St, Central Park South, Broadway, Central Park West, and Eighth Ave lies Columbus Circle. The major building in the area is the Time Warner Center, which includes Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Shops, CNN Headquarters, and the Mandarin Oriental, New York Hotel. At the north end of the circle is Trump International Tower. The Merchant’s Gate to Central Park occupies a good 1/4 of the circle. And to the south is 2 Columbus Circle – a building that is still empty and under consideration for just about anything these days. In the Center of the circle is a statue of Christopher Columbus to commemorate the 400th anniversary of his landing in America. Around it are benches and a fountain/sprinkler system.
Next week: I haven’t decided. It’s been a busy few weeks with trying to start up a business and scheduling headshot sessions. So I will surprise you.
