columbus circle in squares


I'm not 100 about the glass towers
at Columbus Circle and the shopping mall it houses.
The Mandarin hotel is amazing though.
And some of the restaurants are pretty decent
if you have deep pockets.
But having lived in Singapore, Hongkong, Bangkok and Tokyo,
it seems as if New York just
got this type of mall ten years behind.
The buildings are shiny and all fine,
but rather uninteresting.
The complex did however contribute to make Columbus Circle
a bit more accessible, placing it more in the center of things.
It was always an awkward corner southwest of the park.
Of course, I can't deny that the views
from the inside of the towers are pretty decent.
