Queens - Flushing: Flushing Meadows-Corona Park - Unisphere

I stumbled across this photo of the Unisphere, and it reminded me of all the times we'd drive past it on our way somewhere or other when I was a kid. I'd always wanted to see it up close.
As a child, I was under the impression that it was one of those things you can't get too close to. Perhaps it was in an abandoned field or parking lot, surrounded by a fence.
Nope, it's in Corona Park in Flushing, Queens. It's publicly accessible, and I've just decided that sometime during my next 101 Things in 1001 Days, I'm going to see it and photograph it. Live the dream.
