The Unisphere

What's my latest obsession? Far too many to count but The Unisphere in Flushing Meadow, NYC is top of the list. Why the fascination? Dunno really! It looks good, seems a lame response. It was actually built by US Steel for the 1964/65 World's Fair in New York, it's theme, Peace Through Understanding . The fact it remains where it originally stood impressed me. It's over 12 stories high is the largest man made earth in the world. The original fountains work periodically but when not operational it gives you a chance to get up close and personal with the Unisphere. I'll be heading there on my next NY visit.
