Columbus Circle

Columbus Circle, New York City

Lincoln Center at Columbus Circle in New York City
"It couldn't have happened anywhere but in little old New York City." O Henry
The picture you see here is shot from Time Warner Center which can be found at the Columbus Circle in New York City. 

This area acts as a divider. More or less it divides the West from the East and the upper part of town from midtown. Columbus circle is also the home for major TV networks like CNN. The big glass panels we see in the picture belong to the Time Warner Center building. Time Warner is like a 'mall' with high-end shops and is also the home of probably New York City's most expensive restaurants - Per Se and Bar Masa. For those who can't have the luxury of dining at such places, like me for example, you can grab a bite at Whole Foods which can be found at the basement of the building. The variety of food you can find here is endless and I am sure there is something for everyone.

Right in the center of the circle you can find a statue of Christoper Columbus which is standing on a gold pedestal. For those who would like the see Columbus Circle but are far away from it, you can see it on these movies - Cloverfield, I Am Legend, The Devil Wears Prada and It Could Happen to You.

This black and white photograph was captured on my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. Some minor editing was done in PS CS4. Settings for Hipstamatic were BlacKeys B&W/Lucifer IV
