We will explore the rich historic architecture of one of the World’s Fair. Many of the structures still exist and have been renovated. The  layout provides a loop around the flushing Meadow Park with some breath-taking views of the historic structures and buildings. We will see the Unisphere, the Pavilion, the Museum, the Theater and the newly renovated USTA Tennis Center.   As architect, engineer and lovers of history, we can learn so much from the styles, materials and methods of construction. We can also learn how urban planners were able to preserve nature and position structures among some of the most spectacular views and greenery. 

This walking tour will take about 3 hours and provide 3 LU HSW.  This is a new tour specially created for AIA Queens.
