I’m a New York native, specifically from Queens, so of course I fell in love with this ‘64 World’s Fair era ad featuring the iconic Unisphere. It was commissioned to celebrate the beginning of the space age and became a symbol of unity. Also, Queens is considered to be the most ethnically diverse county in the world and there are approximately 800 languages spoken in the borough.
