We have been there a lot.
When people ask me where they should go, I always say to just head to Columbus Circle. You have access to Central Park, Times Square, Lincoln Center, and 5th Avenue within easy reach. There are plenty of benched to sit on with a great fountain circling the monument.
Yesterday we experienced Columbus Circle in an entirely new way-- in Christoper's living room.
This art exhibit is one of the best things that I have done since being in the city. We were only there for about 15 minutes, but it was incredible! After climbing the scaffolding we entered into a room that was built around the 19th century statue. Everything from the carpet to the wallpaper was intended to capture the iconic nature of NYC living and the fantastic world we are fortunate to live in.
I had a great time, and this visit was another great reminder of why I love living in this city.
