This is the center point of the park. Visitors like having their pictures taken in front of it, a favorite is to put your hands in the air and pretend to hold up the globe. The water fountain on in the summer and look particularly...More

That was the 1964 worlds fair theme. My jazz band played underneath the unisphere when I was a kid. The fountains didn’t work then - finally restored in 2010. I love the park grounds in spring, especially the cherry blossoms in April. Amazing for its...More

The Unisphere - blows me away, even thought I never was a fan of globes and of models of the Earth. When the sky is clear, the globe looks like filled with oceans.

The globe and the fountains are pretty impressive and you can get some good pictures as long as you are upwind, otherwise the spray can be a bit wet. Definitely worth a visit if in the area. It has featured in CSI New York on...More

If you are going to the US Open, Met's game, Zoo or Museum you should walk over and check it out. The unishere is definitely a cool site to see. It reminds me of epcot in a way.

Legacy of the 1964 World's Fair, this structure is hugely impressive and dominates Corona Park. Fantastic selfies possible with the globe in the background. Spray from the fountain will keep you cool on a hot day. An off-the-beaten-track item which would give you a break...More

No idea. Maybe if you do a search online, you might learn more. When I was there the fountain was not on.
