1.The Unisphere Stands Where the Perisphere Once Stood

Marking the location of where the Perisphere once stood is the massive globe structure from the 1964/1965 World’s Fair, the Unisphere. The Unisphere was designed by landscape architect Gilmore D. Clarke and erected by the American Bridge Division of the United States Steel Corporation. Like the Perisphere before it, the Unisphere was the central figure of the fair. It weighs in at 350-tons and has a 120-foot-diameter.
