I had never been to the Unisphere before. The park was desert. The temperature, frigid. We felt like explorers. Urban Iconologists. Or, perhaps, Iconographers?


Unisphere #2



"The Panorama of the City of New York is the jewel in the crown of the collection of the Queens Museum of Art. Built by Robert Moses for the 1964 World’s Fair, in part as a celebration of the City’s municipal infrastructure, this 9,335 square foot architectural model includes every single building constructed before 1992 in all five boroughs; that is a total of 895,000 individual structures. It is the thing that everyone who has visited the Museum recalls."

Flushing Meadows - Corona Park

Unspoiled snow.

How beautiful and intriguing for someone that grew up in a tropical place. I specially love the lack of noise that it entails: sounds seems to rest in its softness.
