Night at the World’s Fair in Queens

The Unisphere, aka World's Fair Globe, at night in Queens, New York City.

Built for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, the 12-story high, stainless steel Unisphere remains standing in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York City. At night, with the flashing beams of jets taking off from nearby LaGuardia Airport, the World’s Fair Globe takes on an otherworldly air. Appropriate enough for an event that signaled the dawn of the Space Age.
