This huge circular park is located just outside the Central Park, almost on a corner of Central Park. There are a number of tour guides selling horse drawn tours of Central Park near Columbus Circle. It is definitely less crowded than a lot of other parks in New York City. There are a number of vendors around the Columbus Circle/Central Park area selling food, ice creams and other things. There is a tall statue of Cristopher Columbus, in the middle of the circle. The statue was created as a part of the 400th anniversary of Columbus' landing in the Americas. The park is open from 6 AM until late in the night, according to the signs posted there. A number of options to shop and dine around this place (as would be the case with most other places in New York!). Easy access to the subway makes this a good point to stop by and enjoy the city vibe, especially if visiting the iconic Central Park.

New York City has a variety of holiday shopping venues and one of them is located on Columbus Circle and Central Park West. My wife and I explored the village on our way to Strawberry Fields. The village is similar to the Bryant Park Holiday Village on a smaller scale, with many of the same vendors. Selling many holiday gifts and offering many food options, the holiday village is a nice way to spend some time in NYC during the holidays.

Our hotel was near here so we walked through here many times. The horse drawn carriages are often hanging around near here. Some nice shops. At night it was always busy and we felt safe.

Restaurants, ice cream or shopping. all are conveniently around this circle. try Venchi Chocolate & Gelato at Columbus Circle for an excellent ice-cream, or the shops in the mall. The place is especially nice at dusk

This is a major crossroads, big avenues come together, it's the corner of the park, several subway lines, and then there is the new multi-level shopping center. And the statue on the pedestal. One of the grand places in the city.

We made our way to Columbus Park after wandering through Central Park. Its a very busy location and is a very large roundabout with several landmarks. These include a statue of Christopher Columbus - hence Columbus Circle and a globe atlas, there are benches and a water feature for resting and taking lots of selfies. There are plenty of shops here too. The circle it self is just great to sit and taken in the atmosphere and people watch to your hearts content!

If you want to walk around Central Park and are looking for a good meeting spot beforehand, Columbus Circle is a great option. Statue of Christopher Columbus in the middle and Globe nearby. Lots of landmarks.

Columbus Circle is one of those places that if you happen to end up there...great but no need to go out of your way to find it.

Columbus Circle is the Statue at the tip of the beginning of Central Park. A nice circle dedicated in the honour of Christopher Columbus. The 76 foot high statue stands tall; that doesn’t go without any controversy in the city of New York. It is a busy circle full of traffic and action. Across the street from the Statue are some luxury stores to do some good shopping. Nice area to come and visit and then take a stroll in Central Park.

With the the statue of Christopher Columbus by Gaetano Russo in the middle of Columbus Circle giving this heavily busy traffic circle it’s name, Columbus circle has become an attraction ok itself.
It’s lit! Right next to Central Park this area is filled with shopping centres and people.. you have to be there to feel the infectious vibe here.
