This plaza, bordering Central Park, serves as a transportation hub and shopping venue. In the center, a marble statue of Christopher Columbus sits atop a 70-foot granite column; the monument was created by sculptor Gaetano Russo in 1892 to mark the 400th anniversary of the explorer's first voyage to America.
