[In-person tour] Join us for a walk throughout Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, site of the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Following the map plan of the 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 1939 Trylon and Perisphere), Port Authority Heliport, the Westinghouse Time Capsule, and the Hall of Science. Join guide Lloyd Trufelman for a tour of these sites, along with assorted statues, fountains, former pavilion locations and various other sites.
In-person tours are limited to 20 attendees and are held outdoors. Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore ask that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status. Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation. Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.
MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.
