The Unisphere is a 140-feet high stainless steel globe located in Queens, New York. It is in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. It was designed by landscape architect Gilmore D. Clarke. It is a symbol of the borough of Queens.

The Unisphere was built to celebrate the start of the space age. It was introduced at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair.[1] It represented the theme of countries around the world depending on each other. It was dedicated to "Man's Achievements on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe".
