The New York State Pavilion, constructed as the state’s exhibit hall for the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair, is also a feature of the Flushing Meadows Park. However, no new use for the building was found after the Fair and the structure sits derelict and decaying.

Unisphere

Unisphere

As taken from Wikipedia.

Unisphere is a 12-story high, spherical stainless steel representation of the Earth. Located in Flushing Meadows Park in the Borough of Queens, New York City, the Unisphere is one of the Borough’s most iconic and enduring symbols.

The Unisphere, commissioned to celebrate the beginning of the space age, was conceived and constructed as the Theme Symbol of the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair. The Theme of the World’s Fair was “Peace Through Understanding” and the Unisphere represented the theme of global interdependence. It was dedicated to “Man’s Achievements on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe.”
