nyc. queens. unisphere.

the unisphere was built by the united states steel cooperation for the world’s fair in 1964/65 in the flushing meadows corona park in queens. it is “dedicated to man’s aspirations toward peace through mutual understanding and symbolizing his achievements in an expanding universe”. 

the water fountains are only turned on during special events. i visited while the us open took place just around the corner. lucky me.
