Cooling Off Beneath The Unisphere (And The Rainbow) In Queens

The iconic Unisphere, a giant steel globe perched above the Flushing Meadows- Corona Park is a beautiful spot for Queens residents to stroll, play, relax, and cool off during the summer months. The Unisphere is centered in a large, circular reflecting pool and is surrounded by a series of water-jet fountains, attracting kids to cool off under the globe to beat the heat. Built for the 1964-1965 World's Fair as a symbol of peace, the Unisphere is also a reminder that the world does live in Queens, the most ethnically diverse urban area on earth.
