Not all shopping experiences are created equal, a fact that anyone who has visited the Shops at Columbus Circle can attest to. Here you will find over 40 luxury and specialty retailers, including Armani Exchange, Swarovski, Crabtree & Evelyn, Esprit, Samsung Experience, New York Running Company and Williams-Sonoma. Topped off with a 60,000-square-foot Whole Foods, this collection of stores is the epitome of American style and opulence.
The Shops at Columbus Circle occupy the first four floors of the Time Warner Center, a complex of skyscrapers erected in 2003. The center is also home to Jazz at Lincoln Center — the only venue in the world dedicated specifically to jazz performances — as well as many fine dining restaurants, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and the Time Warner World Headquarters.
After an expensive day of shopping, head down to Elixir Juice Bar on the ground floor or even further down to the Jamba Juice located within Whole Foods on the concourse level one. Take your tasty treat outside to join Christopher Columbus, whose statue stands atop a 70-foot granite column in the middle of the circle. Sit near the dancing water features while you reflect on your posh purchases and enjoy the ambience of midtown Manhattan, the beauty of Central Park, and the sophistication of Columbus Circle.
