Flushing Meadows

Flings shoes.

Mademoiselle. June 1964. 

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.

Wrapping up this mini worlds fair series, there’s this gorgeous mural in the pavement near the Unisphere, and if you look close you can see the shapes of all four Disney pavilions. In order, Ford, Lincoln (Illinois), Small World (Pepsi/Unicef), and Carousel of Progress (General Electric)
