Flushing Meadows Corona Park is home to several sculptures commissioned for the fair, including "Rocket Thrower," ''Freedom of the Human Spirit," ''Form" and "Forms in Transit."
Many events and exhibits will mark the anniversary, including "A Taste of Queens," April 29 at the Sheraton in Flushing, $100 a person, with a variety of food vendors and an appearance by the woman who came from Belgium to sell Belgian waffles at the fair.

No. 7 train to 111th Street in Queens; walk down Roosevelt Avenue toward the Hall of Science at 47th Avenue. You'll see the rocket ships come into view over an auto parts store. The zoo, Unisphere and art museum are nearby, though it's a lot of walking. The next stop on the train, Mets-Willets Point, is closer to the Unisphere, art museum and a bike rental station. By car, take the Grand Central Parkway to the Tennis Center.
