Commissioned to mark the dawn of the Space Age, the 12-story-high Unisphere in Queens’ Flushing Meadows–Corona Park was the symbol of the 1964 World’s Fair. It has since become an icon of the borough of Queens and the City itself. Keep in mind our Bethesda Fountain tip if you’re trying to place friends into the frame. Pro tip: if the fountain surrounding the Unisphere is off and empty, you can get a striking photo looking up from underneath the globe.
