A guided World’s Fair History Walk with Alliance for Flushing Meadows Corona Park docent Linda Fisher. The tour stops at approximately a dozen remaining 1939/40 and 1964/65 World’s Fair sites in the park, from the iconic Unisphere, built by US Steel for the 1964/65 Fair and the New York State Pavilion, with its state-fair-inspired design by Philip Johnson, to lesser-known spectacular spots. You’ll pass what is now Terrace on the Park, but was once the Port Authority pavilion, shaped in a giant T for transportation and, if time allows, the tour will end near the second-oldest outdoor antiquity in New York City, bequeathed to us by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. All ages are welcome. Please wear comfortable shoes. Questions and World’s Fair memories welcome. 

This program is organized in conjunction with Archtober, New York City’s month-long architecture, and design festival.

All Archtober sales are final. No refunds available.
