What you'll do

Didn’t make it to the 1939 or 1964 World’s Fairs but saw these towers in "Men In Black"? Well... here’s your chance! This experience will uncover numerous remnants of both fairs, with a focus on the hidden time capsules, the Fountain of the Planets, the Unisphere, and the historic New York State Pavilion. And if you did attend back in the day, revisit the park and add color by telling us your story! Flushing Meadows-Corona Park has lived many lives from marshy tidal wetlands to an early 20th Century ash dump, to the site of not one, but two World’s Fairs. This tour explores the past, present, and future of this 900 acre park which was an obsession of the late “Master Builder,” Robert Moses. Join me on a journey through Flushing Meadows’ many unnoticed treasures! The tour ends at the Queens Museum (admission included with your experience) where the New York Panorama, a 1964 World’s Fair remnant is on hand for viewing. It’s a must-see for any New Yorker or anyone visiting New York!

Hi! I'm a tour guide and Chief Experience Officer at Untapped New York! I grew up in New York and always had a passion for NYC's diverse history which I have been excited to share with locals and visitors alike for the last few years. After writing several plays about New York, I decided to take the plays out of the theaters and directly into the streets... where the stories actually happened! I can't wait to explore the city with you and show you its hidden gems!
