The first fountain we decided to show you can be seen in Queens, New York City. It was named the Unisphere. In this case, it’s not actually the fountain itself that stands out but rather the steel representation of the globe which is a symbol of the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair. It symbolizes global peace and it sits in the center of the pool.{image from hamishmaccunn}.
