Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in New York City has hosted two World’s Fairs (1939 & 1964). And those fairs boasted many impressive landmarks, including the 610-foot-tall Trylon spire and the “UFOs” of the New York State Pavilion. But the Unisphere is the most well-known and longest-lasting. Designed by landscape architect Gilmore D. Clarke, the steel sphere rises 140 feet and weighs 900,000 pounds (including its base).
