  • Definitely very interesting and impressive. Too bad that visiting in October the fountains were turned off, I would have liked to see them running. The context in which it is inserted.

  • Very nice globe in the Borough of Queens conveniently located right near all the other attractions in Queens. It shoots out water too and there are lots of kids playing in the waterpark so this is a g...  read more »
  • עברנו שם במקרה בדרך מלה גווארדיה. הפארק עצמו חמוד, לא משהו שרואים כל יום. אבל לא שווה נסיעה במיוחד ממנהטן. אם נמצאים כבר באיזור אפשר להשקיע לו קצת זמן. 
  • Best viewed in the summer when the fountains are on. They say it isn't open for wading by the public, but no one will stop you. Indeed on hot days it becomes an unofficial public pool. This is the best time to visit. It is a stunning masterpiece as well. well worth the visit. If only it could be restored along with the rest of the park... :(
  • Recently moved back to Flushing after being gone for 30 years. When I was a kid (back in the 70's) I always looked in awe at the Unisphere and believed that the future looked golden - yes we had our issues - but we had competent leadership and HOPE for the future. Now visiting the Unisphere as a 48 year old man I wonder WTF happened??? The country is more DIVIDED than ever, and incivility & rudeness are at an all time high. I still believe in the "promise" that the Unisphere portrays - but we need COMPETENT leadership. Nice to see the fountains working and everyone enjoying it although I notice that the Unisphere is OFF LIMITS during the US Open.
  • Most of the people are stunned to realized how gigantic this sculpture actually is when they see from their own eyes. Great place to learn the history of (2) previous world's fair.
  • When you stand next to the sphere, it's huge. There's a pokemon gym and couple pokestops near by.
  • This area is beautiful. You have your culture at the Queens museum. There's the globe that's perfect on a hot summer day as the sprinklers are on. And then there's the spacious lawn for picnics and BBQs. And to top it off, you have free parking. Definitely worth spending a warm day here.
