We walked down to the Unisphere at 10 pm after leaving the Mets game at Citi Field. Unless you're with a big group, this is not a wise idea. Fortunately nothing happened other than our quick visit. The Unisphere is pretty awesome though once we got there. There were only a few people around while we were there. I was... More

This 12 story structure can be seen from the subway entrance/exit for Williets Park/Mets baseball, but it is more impressive close up. It towers over you and was a good landmark for us to find the Queens Museum. It is one of the few remaining structures from the 1964 World's Fair and in 50 years it has not lost its... More

You can see the Unisphere from the 7 train and it gets even better up close. I am very glad I made the effort to visit this iconic landmark. It's free and truly remarkable to see in real life.

The Unisphere is one of the few remaining objects left over in Flushing Meadow Park from the 1964 Worlds Fair. It has even lasted longer than the Baseball stadium from that same fair. Shea Stadium is a memory, but the Unisphere stands on.

Pretty neat little landmark. Nothing special, but it is a pretty recognizable object. Not far from the LaGuardia airport.

This familiar icon looks just like you expect, from having seen it in movies and on logos for years ... and yet it's better, and bigger, and awe-inspiring. My family (college students and adults) thought I was a bit wacky for wanting to go, yet everyone said, quite genuinely, "Wow!" when it came into view. Flushing Meadows Park is both... More

I lived in Flushing, just one subway stop from Flushing Meadown Corona Park, for nearly 10 years. And while I never really got to love the neighborhood, I did grow to love the Unisphere, and enjoyed every time I went to the park (usually to inline skate) and passed by it. When you leave the subway, you just walk over... More

The Unisphere in Flushing Meadow Park is always an awesome sight to behold, it is a gargantuan structure all made of steel. I especially love to visit during the US Open Tennis when the water fountains surrounding the Unisphere are in full spectacular display. This steel globe has been an iconic site in Queens since the 1964 World’s Fair which... More

A little walk from the subway stop. Big well maintained park with what is left of the 64 WorldFair.... The unisphere and towers the alien in MIB climbed. Also, the mosaics and a sculpture remain. Arthur Ashe stadium where the are having the US Open. The new Mets stadium is on the other side of the subway stop..
