See how these 2 events shaped this beautiful park in Queens
With Lloyd Trufelman
Join us for a walk throughout Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, site of the 1939 and 1964 New York World’s Fairs. Following the map plan of both original fairgrounds, the tour will include such sights as the Queens Museum (formerly NYC Pavilion), Philip Johnson’s NY State Pavilion, the Unisphere (exact site of the Trylon & Perisphere), Port Authority Heliport, the Westinghouse Time Capsule, and the Hall of Science. We’ll visit these sites, along with assorted statues, fountains, former pavilion locations and various other fragments.
