NYSFCircle, officially the New York Science Fiction Circle -- was a club in New York City which dissolved in 1958 and was replaced by the Metrofen. It was known as just "Circle." It originally met at the home of Jean Carrol, but in late 1953 had its meetings in Werderman’s Hall in Manhattan. Next, the club moved to Riverside Dive in 1955.

In 1956, it fell apart in the wake of NyCon II. All three officersArt Saha, Bill Donaho and Danny Curran — resigned and told the rest that the club could no longer meet at Riverside Dive. A reorganization made David MacDonald director, Carole Ingersoll treasurer and Dave Van Ronk secretary.
