The Bored Vegetarian

Over the weekend, my friend Whitney and I took the 7 train to Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens to explore the structures left behind from the 1964-1965 World’s Fair.  The Unisphere is still in good shape, but the observatory towers and pavilion are rusting away and being taken over by stray cats.

I was under the impression that the World’s fair expositions ceased to exist after a certain point, but apparently they still happen:  The next one’s in Milan in 2015.

    I love how it is currently an abandoned scar on the city, as though the future they envision died.
