Aerial view of Columbus Circle.
|Location||Columbus Circle, Manhattan, New York|
Completed in 1905 and renovated a century later, it is located at the intersection of Broadway, Central Park West, Central Park South (59th Street), and Eighth Avenue, at the southwest corner of Central Park, with coordinates. The traffic circle was designed by William P. Eno, a businessman who pioneered many early innovations in road safety and traffic control, as part of Frederick Law Olmsted's vision for the park, which included a "Grand Circle" at Merchants' Gate, its most important Eighth Avenue entrance.
After an unconscious suggestion from Hud, the three climb to the semi-top of the first tower to climb across the second rooft in order to reach Beth's Apartment on the 39th floor of the building (owned by her father).
After rescuing Beth, the four leave Columbus Circle and make a run for Corner of E 40th Street and Park Avenue, the final evacuation site in the city.
