Queens, New York: 1964-65 New York World's Fair Attractions

Address:
Queens, NY
Directions:
Take the #7 train to 111th St. in Queens. Walk downhill on 111th St. (south) for four blocks. Just after you cross under a bridge, you'll see the rockets to the left; you can cut diagonally through the parking lot to get to them. The supersonic jet sculpture is behind the rockets. To get to the other World's Fair sites, walk down the road to the right of the supersonic jet sculpture, then make a left at the geodesic dome and walk across the bridge over the Grand Central Pky. To the right is a gray, boxy building, the Queens Museum of Art; the plaque to the bomb victims is set in the ground, to the left of its front entrance, which faces the Unisphere. To the left of the plaque are the towers and ruins of the New York State Pavilion. The time capsules are on the far side of the Pavilion, to the right, in a little circular patio.
