I was born after the 1964 World's Fair so I don't have the memories of it but it's beautiful to see and easy to find.

This symbolizes the 1964 World's fair now almost 50 years ago. I love the giant memories it brings back everytime I see it. Flushing Meadow Park wouldn't be the same with it Or the Rockets Or the Science Pavillion Terrace on the Park too Had my Senior HS Prom there

Very nice place to go, too bad they didn't turn on the water on the day we went. But because the water was not on, we went right undertake globe

Easy to find. Especially coming in on the 7 train to the Willets Point stop. You will see it on the other side of the stadium. The park itself is massive and there is much open space. But the Unisphere is the perfect spot for picture taking. Fountains operate in the warmer season.

Plenty of park space here with this beautiful structure. The park is big, plenty to do and has Geocaches hidden all around.

Ah, yes. A reminder of days past. This is, if my facts are not mistaken, still the largest, well, Earth, on Earth. From the 1964 World's Fair, this isn't exactly an interactive site but it is historic and pleasant. Vibrant people-watching during the summer and right by the Queens Museum of Art, also a nice stop.

A remnant from an old worlds fair, it still is in decent condition. The summers bring a beautiful path and fountains, but the winter time is still nice for a run.

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.
