Worldwide Sketch Crawl #40, New York City

Lets meet at the Unisphere, one of Queens' iconic and enduring symbols in Flushing Meadow/ Corona Park.
The twelve story steel globe installed for the 1964-65 Worlds Fair represents global interdependence and has stood the test of time unlike the beautifully decaying structures left behind from the Worlds Fair. We can stroll the park, view skateboarders, see soccer and cricket games, watch the boats on the lake, spy the Egyptian Pillar or go into the small Art Museum.

Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a distance. We can lunch in the park -bring your own -(optional) or land in downtown Flushing for  dumplings if the spirit moves us.

Take the #7 train to Willets Point/Shea Stadium /Citi Field stop which is the Northern  part of the park. The stop is surrounded by stadium parking. Walk down the pedestrian ramps to the main part of the park or Shea/Citi, it's a short walk to the US Open East Gate entrance. Walk further south to the Unishpere and Queens Museum of Art. (10 minutes).

In case of rain we will meet at the Queens Museum of Art.

If you can't find us call Denise's cell phone  516-263-4818.
