The Unisphere was the featured location for Sonnet 44, performed by Kevin Brewer, directed by Sean Gannett: http://sonnetprojectnyc.com/portfolio/play-sonnet-44/
The steel used in making the Unisphere was from the top of the Empire State Building, which used to be ten feet taller.

Beautiful July Sunday afternoon -- fountain is on!
Go at night in the snow! It is sooo lovely!
Check out the sprinklers.
Fountain open for the summer!!

Lovely to bike around. I hope the construction around the Unisphere is finished soon!
