The Queens parks commissioner calls it an “a-maize-ing tribute” to the iconic landmark in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
FLORAL PARK, QUEENS — The Queens County Farm Museum has released a sneak peek of its new, three-acre corn maze in the shape of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park’s iconic Unisphere, which opens this weekend.
The Unisphere-inspired Amazing Maize Maze makes its grand debut during the 37th Annual Queens County Fair, a two-day extravaganza featuring carnival rides and games, performances and the Queens Farm’s blue ribbon contest.
Commissioned for the New York World’s Fair of 1964-65 and designed by landscape architect Gilmore Glarke, the Unisphere has since become a beloved borough symbol.
“This a-maize-ing tribute pays homage to Queens’ roots and celebrates one of our city’s most iconic landmarks,” Queens Borough Commissioner for NYC Parks Michael Dockett said in a statement when the maze was announced in August.
