    Easily accessible with Citi Bike stations on either side of the Circle - north at 62 and Broadway and south at 58th and Broadway. Go for a spin!

    Enjoy the view and New York vibe. Back in the day you would've found the great actor Robin Williams hanging out here. TMZ even posted a vid of him on the circle a few years ago.

    This sculpture is pretty awesome - a tourist bear holding some poop. Not sure if it is a comment on tourism, Columbus, or the city.
