Business Description

Located at the intersection of Broadway, Central Park West, Central Park South (59th Street), and Eighth Avenue, situated at the southwest corner of Central Park, the Columbus Circle was completed in 1905. The designer of the park, Frederick Law Olmsted, had planned this site for the entrance to Central Park, hoping to create a grand entryway for what was to be one of the largest city parks in the world. The circle itself was designed by William Eno, who was known for devising ways to make travel safer, even in the days when cars were few in New York City.
