Happy Columbus Day !!

Columbus Day became a federal holiday in 1934. It is the day to celebrate the first voyage to the Americas in 1492 by Christopher Columbus. Since 1971, the holiday has been fixed to the 2nd Monday in October and most banks, federal agencies, the US Post Office and some schools remain closed to observe the holiday. I had a wonderful time at Columbus Circle during my stay in the city for the US Open and thought this was a great day to share my photos with you.


this is one of my favorite areas as lots to do here 

Trump International Hotel and Tower is here for your stay in the city 

how pretty is this? such a lovely day it was .....

here is the statue from across the street 

the wonderful writing on the monument 

It was erected as part of New York's 1892 commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Columbus' first voyage to the Americas

I love the angels on the bottom 

reminds you of what you see in Italy, doesn't it ?

many views of beauty 

Again, Happy Columbus Day to all and when in the city, be sure to visit Columbus Circle as you will really enjoy it and the lovely views ..........
