Get on the 7, a must see in person
I didn't know that it was a fountain you can play in. Charming and refreshing!
This gigantic sphere is pretty cool. Come here and sit on one of the benches to relax from the soaring summer heat.
Amazing metal sculpture!
Nice date location
This thing is way bigger in real life. Pretty cool spot to just hang out and do some exploration
Snap a shot of the giant globe
Worlds fair icon....well maintained
Fountain is on for the US Open
This popular landmark has been featured in a couple of movies, such as Men in Black! Great to go in the summertime and it's surrounded by beautiful fountains!
Bite the big apple
I have some very special memories of this spot .
I got engaged here 4 yrs ago!!
Check out the Sonnet Project's film that happened here. VERY COOL. http://bit.ly/13F2S3Z
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.
Even better up close
Ride around the unisphere when the sprinklers are on and cool down ^_^
The birthplace of Stark Enterprises!!
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.
#StaffPick David (External Affairs): Artist Matt Mullican’s Etched Granite Pavement at the base of the Unisphere traces the history of the park from its prehistoric roots through 2 World’s Fairs.
The place to see and be seen.
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!!
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
Lovely to bike around. I hope the construction around the Unisphere is finished soon!
El mudo a sus pies
Un lugar con mucha fotogenia.
