Unisphere in Flushing Meadow Park: 9/9/17
This was taken close to midnight, the last night of the U.S. Tennis Open. I was quite fortunate that the NYPD allowed me access to drive my car right next to the sphere. I had the entire World to myself.....(quite a frightening thought!!)

"At 140 feet, the Unisphere stands 12 stories tall. The globe itself is constructed with 700,000 pounds of stainless steel and spans 120 feet, making it the largest globe on earth. There are three rings circling the perimeter of the globe that represent the orbits of three significant leaps in space flight; the first man in space, the first American to orbit the earth and the first communications satellite."
