the core of the apple

Columbus Circle / New York, New York
Columbus Circle - located at the intersection of Central Park West, Central Park South, Broadway and Eighth Avenue - is the official point at which distances to and from New York City are measured. The centerpiece of the circle is a marble and granite statue installed in 1892 in honor of the 400th anniversary of Columbus' voyage to America. But once the sun goes down, the real show begins - the dancing fountain jets around the perimeter of the circle designed by WET; better known for their infamous "Fountains of Bellagio". Truth be told - the fountains were far more engaging to photograph than David Blaine!
