Roy Hubbard's photos

This was the first time I'd ever seen the fountain turned on. I remember being dog tired after a day full of walking and lugging around equipment, but when I saw this I had no choice but to stay just a little longer.

The Unisphere sat in a state of more or less disrepair since the 1970s, until a major renovation by the city's Parks Department in the early 90s. The fountain was finally repaired and turned on for good in the summer of 2010.

This photo was taken during the U.S Open tournament in 2009, which I guess is why it was turned on almost a year earlier.
