And of course my husband had to stop and get something to eat from a street vendor. Boy, the stuff smells great but my stomach can't handle it well. But here's a classic NYC scene:
I held the camera low and used the "no flash" option. Hehehe...sneaky:
I love that the shops surrounding the circle are curved. Here's a great shot of it:
There are a ton of great shopping in the area...Best Buy, Whole Foods, and other "mall" stores. I love going in there during Christmas because of all the decorations. And I love the fountains near the monument. I just learned they were done by the same people who did Bellagio's fountains in Las Vegas. Too cool!
I also just learned that you can see Columbus's three ship on the monument: The Nina, The Pinta, and The Santa Maria. The things we learn...
Here's one of my favorite shots:And of course...here's the Globe thing...
Hope you enjoyed the trip around Columbus Circle!
***Note: I orginally titled this post "Night at Columbus Square". Sigh. Quite odd since I know's it's called Columbus Circle...and it's a circle. Has this day (read the news if you don't know what I'm talking about) worn any one else out? My current job is at a financial investing company (I won't tell you which one) so it's obviously causing quite the stir.
