Flushing Meadows

queens, new york

In 1964 Flushing Meadow Park served as the grounds for the New York Worlds Fair.  The 64 Fair was poetically themed around "Man's Achievement on a Shrinking Glove in an Expanding Universe" -- highlighted by a 12-story stainless steel Unisphere, which still stands today

Following its close in 1965, much of the original architecture was demolished,  re-purposed and/or simply abandoned -- but the Unisphere still remains as an iconic remnant of the Fair, at the heart of the Park
