    The steel used in making the Unisphere was from the top of the Empire State Building, which used to be ten feet taller.

    Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s stainless steel crown jewel served as the centerpiece of the 1964 World’s Fair and was made and donated by U.S. Steel as a symbol of peace.

    The unisphere marks the global promise of the UN's first home, fulfilled decades later by NYC's immigrant borough. Come in Summee for the fountains, in Fall to watch kids play, skate & climb its base.

    The fountain has never been on the three times I've visited the past 2 years, but skaters and roller bladers dig the empty space. However, it's all fenced off now. Looks like they're fixing it up
