The Queens Museum is in itself an interesting piece of the area's history. The museum's building, although created to be a permanent structure, was built for the 1939 World's Fair. After the fair's closing, the building was used as a recreation center for Flushing Meadows Corona Park in which there was a roller rink and an ice rink. It later housed the General Assembly of the newly formed United Nations from 1946 to 1950. For the 1964 World’s Fair the building was once again transformed and utilized. The dramatic Panorama display of NYC that was created for the fair still remains today as well as the infamous 140 foot high, 900,000 lb. steel Unisphere that sits adjacent to the building.
