«Unisphere»

Here is another remnant of that distant 1964 World’s Fair. Unisphere is probably the most famous symbol of Queens. During the summer there are fountains around it, but right now kids are using the fountain pool as a skating ground.

The sphere itself it pretty gigantic. I didn’t really realize it until I started getting up close to it. People on the photo give it a good sense of scale.

And again, if you’re not from New York you might remember it from the same scene in Men In Black. They crashed a space ship into it.
Flushing Meadows. Queens. March 2011.
