Autumn in Corona Park, Queens

Whilst the tourists of Manhattan cram into Central Park, making the most of an unexpected, November heatwave, I roam the silence of Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. There, you can find the remnants of the 1939 and 1964 World Fairs. Both took place in New York and the Unisphere (pictured above) is one of the most recognisable, leftover landmarks.

Though the sun shone hard and bright today, the earth is in a phase of decline. Pinecones litter the ground and the raw blush of autumn colours almost every leaf.

The park is pretty much empty at this time of year. Populated only by grey squirrels and the odd, Japanese tourist who has traveled from afar to capture the Unisphere on camera.

It always impresses me how the world can look so vibrant, so bright and alive, when it is in a state of decay. Perhaps the plants and the trees know they’ll rejuvenate in the spring. That hope still remains, even with the coming of a cold, dark winter.
