  • All it contrary to the hustle and bustle of New York. A quiet Park, with few tourists. Also little to do. Walks and hotos the Unisphere and the City Field. Just the next day to finish the tournament in Flushing Meadows. It was all full of trucks to pick up the fences. It is very well with metro, but it is relatively far from Manhattan. 30 minutes by metro.

  • It may have been a cold day, but my daughter and I really enjoyed walking through the remains of the 1939 and 1964-1965 world's fair grounds. The Unisphere sure has staying power. Don't forget your ca...  more »
  • It is can go using visit the USTA or El Citi Field, since the Park is nearby and worth visiting it.

  • The entire area has a strange post apocalyptic vibe. Glad to see the sphere is still add lovely as ever. Great for picnicking nearby from the breeze it creates.
  • 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.
  • 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.
