Queens: The Worlds (Fair) Borough

Flushing Meadows-Corona Park was home to both the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs. On this guided walking tour, we will explore the park and its landmarks and learn about the history of the two Worlds Fair it was home to, both of which were crucial in changing the infrastructure of New York City in lasting ways. After exploring the park, we will visit the Queens Museum, home of the Panorama of the City of New York, the world’s largest architectural model, which depicts all of the buildings in the entire city of New York in 1:1200 scale.

It has to be seen to be believed.
