Columbus Circle Compass

Just in time for the NYC Moleskine CityNotebook? :)

ColumbusCircleCompass.com introduces a proposal and petition to install a large-scale compass rose on Columbus Circle, a major gateway to the Upper West Side. So far, the support has been very positive.

Just this week, the New York City Department of Design and Construction has forwarded this recommendation to the Central Park Conservancy as well as Olin Partnership for their consideration.
