Columbus Circle in New York City. Photography by Kevin De Ridder

 

Columbus Circle, named for Christopher Columbus, is a significant landmark and place of attraction in the borough of Manhattan, located at the intersection of 8th Avenue, Broadway, West 59th Street, and Central Park West, at the southwest corner of Central Park. It is the place from which all official distances from New York City are calculated. The name is also used for the area a few blocks around the circle in every direction.

Finished in 1905 and renovated a century later, the circle was created by William P. Eno, a business person who pioneered several early improvements in road safety.
