Columbus Critiques

The Journal's Ralph Gardner visited the new Columbus Circle living room, built atop a 75-foot granite column to surround the statue of Christopher Columbus. He likes it! "It's not as thrilling as I expect viewing the Earth from moon orbit would be, but it offers a subtle shift on your perspective of the city."
