Unisphere and NYS Towers on a Macy's Float!!

Recommended Posts

Yes, indeed the Unisphere representation is quite un-Unisphere-like, but at the same time there is no mistaking what the two towers behind it are!

Here's the thread from last year that discusses both the History Channel float and the float with the Unisphere used to promote the Fair back in the sixties.

Unfortunately I'm not seeing the images that I remember seeing there last year. MAybe they'll re-appear...

If the NYS Towers are so important to New Yorkers, why are they the only landmarks depcited on that float that are, in reality, in a state of total disrepair? I don't get it.

Yes, that's true, but those are, indeed, Hollywood towers. They are digitally reproduced and bear little resemblance to their rotting counterparts in the real world of Queens.

That's true, you'd have to go back to 1977 Diana Ross in the WIZ for a prominent movie appearance.WIZmini.jpg[/attachment:1a69d]
