Didn’t make it to the 1939/40 or 1964/65 World’s Fairs? Well here’s your chance! On our upcoming Remnants of the Word’s Fairs Tour, guests will explore the many remnants of the World’s Fairs in today’s Flushing Meadows-Corona Park including time capsules, Andy Warhol mosaics and more. Each guest will also go home with a souvenir – in true fair fashion -a reproduction of World’s Fair maps from both 1939 and 1964.
Flushing Meadows-Corona Park has lived many lives from marshy tidal wetlands to an early 20th Century ash dump, to the site of not one, but two World’s Fairs. This Flushing Meadows tour explores the past, present, and future of the 900-acre park which was an obsession of the late “Master Builder,” Robert Moses. Join Untapped New York’s Cheif Experience Officer Justin Rivers as he leads you on a journey through Flushing Meadows’ many unnoticed treasures.
All of Untapped New York’s upcoming in-person experiences will adhere to our new health and safety measures to ensure everyone has a fun and safe time. The first Remnants of the World’s Fairs tour will run on Sunday, September 13th.
