Spring has finally arrived in Queens, there is no doubt about it.
Monday was such a beautiful day, I took my camera to Flushing Meadows Park.
Later, I submitted one of my photos to the local newspaper. They liked it and decided to publish it on their site and in this week’s printed edition of the Queens Chronicle.
The photo exhibits the ruins of the World’s Fair Observatory Tower framed by the Pink Weeping Cherry Blossoms in full bloom.
The towers were built for the 1964/65 World’s Fair.
They have since remained closed, except for this upcoming Tuesday April 22, 2014.
Tuesday marks the 50th anniversary of the first of two seasons that were the New York City World’s Fair.
To commemorate this occasion, the towers are going to be opened to the public for three hours.
People will be lining up for this event like they do for Jordan sneaker releases. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, my camera and I will be there to capture all the action.
