Latin Culture in Columbus Circle
About Columbus Circle
Columbus Circle was originally designed as one of the corners of Central Park. The plaza was rebuilt over a subway station in 1901.
It is the home of the Time Warner Center mall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Dizzy’s Club and the Museum of Arts and Design.
The Mandarin Oriental is the big hotel. It has great views over Central Park.
Time Warner Center gas two giant Botero sculptures, “Adam & Eve.” Touching Adam’s private parts have become a local good luck charm. They are very shiny. 🇨🇴
Christopher Columbus was pure evil. He was not a great navigator. He was lost and his entire expedition was going to die when Indigenous Taíno rescued him. He lied about discovering “America” to claim a reward for himself. He enslaved Indigenous Americans and tried to sell them in Europe. He failed, but his efforts encouraged Atlantic slavery. He was so abusive to America’s Indigenous peoples that his own Spanish sponsors called back, stripped his wealth, jailed and tried him. The man deserves no respect.
Italian Americans embraced him after the U.S. government started the Columbus Day celebration to discourage Confederate traitors in the American South from lynching Italian Americans because they lived in African American communities. Columbus Day started after an international incident forced the U.S. government to pay reparations to Italy.
Now that we can’t say we didn’t know, Columbus needs to be thrown in the trash bin of history where he belongs.
