Columbus Circle Review

This busy traffic circle at Central Park's southwest corner anchors the Upper West Side and makes a good starting place for exploring the neighborhood if you're coming from south of 59th Street. The central 700-ton granite monument (capped by a marble statue of Christopher Columbus) serves as a popular meeting place. To some people, Columbus Circle is synonomous with the Time Warner Center building (P212/823–6300 www.shopsatcolumbuscircle.com) and its several floors of shops and restaurants—including takeout-friendly Bouchon Bakery and Whole Foods, both perfect places to pick up picnic fixings to take to Central Park.
