Columbus Circle & Plaza de Colón

4 04 2012

For a long time, every time I went to NYC on business, I always used to visit a law firm located in the Columbus Circle.

I went back to the (circular) square on my recent trip to New York for the first time in years and went to the Time Warner Center for the first time.  It wasn’t there the last time I visited.

It’s a nice view through the vast glass window of this multi-purpose complex.

And speaking of Columbus Circle/Square, I was told that every city in Spain has one.

Plaza de Colón in Madrid, Spain.  From February, 2010.

And it was rather amusing that traffic lights were not working at this busy intersection when I visited…

In Barcelona, I believe it’s set in a “circle” but they just call it a “monument“.  I didn’t see him from the front.  This is also from February, 2010.

And I thought perhaps there may be a Plaza de Colón in every Spanish-speaking city in South America but I could not find one in Buenos Aires.  There is however an opera theatre, Teatro Colón, in the Argentinian capital.  This is from a visit in November, 2009 when the theatre was getting a facelift.
