    Worlds Fair Globe

    I was at my sons house in Queens this weekend so I decided to take a ride and take a few shots of the Worlds Fair Globe. My parents took me there when I was a baby. Here is a shot of it.

    I see they've taken precautions to prevent it escaping.

    Cool We are the Men in Black!

    Frank,

    Not to be a curmudgeon, but the globe you have imaged was assembled during the 1964 World's Fair (<- click here), also held in New York. The 1939-40 fair you referenced was indeed huge, but unlike 1964's ... nothing remained of it. It featured the sphere and spike.

    The '64 edition of the fair had the "Globe" and "Observation towers", featured in the movie, "Men in Black" (<- click here)

    I like the shot.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Well, when you said you were there as a small child ... "1939" would make you ... well, a whole lot older. LOL
