Travelled by Metro 7 to Mets-Wiletts Point and it is about 12 minute walk from the station along a boardwalk and into the Flushing Meadow Park. The stadiums of the New York Mets are here as well the Arthur Ashe Court for the US Open. The Unisphere is much bigger than I thought it was going to be and sits... More

A remnant of the world's fair, the Unisphere is surrounded by a giant water sprinkler system. Kids play and adults can sit and relax. Great place for taking photos

It's fun to look and see this thing once. I just wish the fountains were still turned on for the warm fall weather.

This is now just a memory of the incredible 1964 New York World's Fair. It was meant to be just an exhibit but it was so beautiful New York decided to keep it.

I have a view of the Corona Flushing Meadows Park from my place. I really love seeing this park everyday. My favourite thing in the park is the Unisphere! So beautiful! At night it is lit up.

The magnitude of this site can only be appreciated in person. Walking past Billy Jean King Stadium, through the trees you start to see bits of the Unisphere poking through. Then BAM, there it is. It is quite a site to behold. It may seem like a silly thing to trek all the way to Flushing to see this, but... More

Unless you pass by this object on the way to the US Open, there is no reason to be here. Its fountain is insipid. And your desire to gaze at this structure will only last seconds.

Not sure what to say: the landmark holds a major memory to me. However, the unisphere is a focal point of the area. There really is no business that happens here.
