The Unisphere seen from its base inside the (drained) fountain basin

The topic of this weblog entry, Flushing meadow's Corona Park Unisphereis not a new one in this extensive Travbuddy weblog. I visited the huge metal globe several times and made at least this and this entry. See also those two log entries for more information on the Unisphere, the largest globe in the world,which is a remainder of the 1964 New York City World Fair.

I had to take my car to the dealership for an oil change. In the time I had to kill I decided to visit Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Due to the excellent weather we had lately many trees had burst into bloom. A spectacular view!

Every winter, the basin that surrounds the huge Unisphere is drained, like the Parks Department does to many other water structures. Since it is still not summer the water was still drained. This allowed me to have a closer look at the huge structure, and from a different angle. Very impressive!
