A great place to get a hotdog from a clean vendor and chill out next to the fountains. Unfortunately there are rough sleepers there at night but they don’t bother you.

Good spot to take a break, meet a friend or eat lunch. You just have to be aware of the many different birds swooping around.

Good place to start exploring Central Park but everything here is overpriced, why not grab coffees, ice creams etc in the park or from elsewhere nearby. Book ahead as much as you can- bikes, tours etc- save money and avoid touts.

We took a few minutes and sat in the small park at Columbus Circle. It was fun to watch all the people walking by!

Hello, We need your help. Going on a “sisters” weekend trip to New York. First time for the three of us and don’t even know where to start. Arriving to LG airport at 10am Jan 26 and staying until Mon 28. Staying on the corner of Central Park and Columbus Cir. Need help starting. We were told to purchase the Explorer pass with different attraction options. We have thought of purchasing a pass with the Big Bus Hop in hop off 1 day pass, with tickets to the Statue of Liberty, Imperial State Building, 9/11 memorial museum, Soho-Little Italy-Chinatown tour, and the Guggenheim Museum. The bus says to go by the Brooklyn Bridge, and since it is going to be really cold, we thought of seeing it as we go from the bus. In the evening we are thinking of staying really late in Times Square. Since we will be by Central Park and Columbus Cir, we are thinking of spending the day around this area on Sunday. Or we could do this on Sat during the day plus Times Square in the evening, and do the Big Bus Ride with all the other entrances on Sunday. Monday morning we have planned to do some shopping at the mall near the hotel. Are we too off track? Please forgive our ignorance. We just have never been to New York. Thanks
