It's My Park: The Unisphere (1964 World's Fair)

154 views 1 month ago
The Unisphere in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park was designed for the 1964-65 World's Fair by Parks Architect Gilmore D. Clarke (1892--1982). The 35-ton, 120-foot-high steel globe set in a fountain was constructed by U.S. Steel to celebrate the dawn of the Space Age, one of the themes of the World's Fair. The three rings circling the globe represent the first NASA satellites to orbit the earth.
