Huge steel sculpture of the world, one of the main attractions in Corona Park. Stopped for pictures on my way to nearby Queens Museum.

A New York City landmark, and a triumph of engineering and metalwork. It is a standout in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, set within a pool and fountain. If you're in the area, sure, stop and spend a few minutes. Or use it as a bike destination.

Very nice globe in the Borough of Queens conveniently located right near all the other attractions in Queens. It shoots out water too and there are lots of kids playing in the waterpark so this is a great place to bring your kids as well.

Built for the 1964 World's Fair, this is quite a large, impressive sculpture. It is 12 stories tall and looks much bigger in person than it does in photos. It is absolutely gorgeous at night with the fountains and lights. Very peaceful and appealing.

I loved going there. It brought so many memories of the NY World's Fair. 64-65. For the young, who missed it. it was such a amazing fair.

I was born after the 1964 World's Fair so I don't have the memories of it but it's beautiful to see and easy to find.

This symbolizes the 1964 World's fair now almost 50 years ago. I love the giant memories it brings back everytime I see it. Flushing Meadow Park wouldn't be the same with it Or the Rockets Or the Science Pavillion Terrace on the Park too Had my Senior HS Prom there

Easy to find. Especially coming in on the 7 train to the Willets Point stop. You will see it on the other side of the stadium. The park itself is massive and there is much open space. But the Unisphere is the perfect spot for picture taking. Fountains operate in the warmer season.
