Unisphere in Queens

A sight instantly recognizable, the Unisphere was built for the 1964-1965 World’s Fair by U.S. Steel. Made of stainless steel and 120 feet in diameter, the Unisphere is the unofficial symbol of Queens. The site of the Fair is now Flushing Meadows Corona Park, which is also home to Shea Stadium, the USTA National Tennis Center, New York Hall of Science, and the Queens Museum of Art.
According to the Queens Courier (August 10, 2005), the Unisphere will be renovated in 2006 to repair the surrounding fountains.
