Visited the Unisphere while it was under heavy renovations. No water running in the fountain and had no actual access. Still it was quite beautiful and larger than expected.

Watched the 8/21/17 eclipse here (75%). Didn't bring special glasses, like I should have. Very cool structure. So famous from all the moving picture shows. Member men in black? Worth a visit for sure. US Open is right next door. So is the 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...More

Far to walk (5 miles or so). But easy 7 train ride to Flushing (20 mins).

No idea. Maybe if you do a search online, you might learn more. When I was there the fountain was not on.
