The Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, often called Flushing Meadow Park or Flushing Meadows Park, located north of Queens, New York City, USA, at the intersection of the Long Island Expressway and Grand Central Parkway. It is the second largest public park in the city of New York (after Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx), was created to house the New York World's Fair 1939/1940 and he saw the New York World's Fair 1964. The park is maintained and operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation New York City. The park is located at the eastern edge of the area covered by the Fourth Community Board Queens.1 The park has an area of 5 km ², and was created on a former landfill as "a valley of ashes" in the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. The place, known for such time as the Ash Dump Corona (Corona Ash Dumps), was cleared by Parks Commissioner Robert Moses, in preparation for the World's Fair 1939-1940. Moses encountered the dilemma of having to dispose of mountains of ashes, so strategically incorporated a lot of debris at the base of the Van Wyck Expressway, which runs alongside the park, the nearby Interboro Parkway (now Jackie Robinson Parkway) and the Long Island Expressway that divides the park into two areas north and south. The Grand Central Parkway separates an eastern part of the main north, while the Jewel Avenue running east to west, cuts the south. Some of the buildings of the Fair of 1939 were used as the first temporary offices of the United Nations from 1946 until they moved in 1951 to its permanent offices in Manhattan. Former New York State Building was used by the UN General Assembly during that period. This building was later remodeled for the 1964 Fair as the Pavilion of the City of New York (New York City Pavilion), featuring the Panorama of the City of New York, a huge scale model of the whole is currently ciudad.2 only surviving building of the Fair, 1939, and the house of the Queens Museum of Art, which still houses, and occasionally updated, the Panorama. The Unisphere, built as a symbol for the World's Fair 1964/1965, is the main sculptural quality of the park. It is located in the place occupied by the Perisphere during the previous fair.
