Flushing Meadows Corona Park

       We spent last weekend in New York City, and our first stop was the Queens Museum of Art – more about that to come in a later post.  The museum is in Corona Park at Flushing Meadows, the site of the 1964 World’s Fair; these photos show a couple of the attractions that are still standing.

       The Unisphere, 140 feet high and 35 tons and made of stainless steel, was donated to the World’s Fair by United States Steel Corporation.  The Unisphere was restored in 1994 and given official landmard status.  

       The New York State Pavilion; although the colorful roof and map of New York State on the floor are no longer there, the structure still stands in its original location and glory, and it was given landmark status a couple of years ago.  

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don, http://www.randolphmase.com.  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
