The park was the site of two world's fairs. It is also famous for its part in the movie "Men In Black."

The park is the second largest public park in New York City.

Created as the site of the 1939/1940 New York World's Fair, the park was also the site of the 1964/1965 World's Fair.

The site was originally the Corona Ash Dumps.

The site consists of 1,255 acres (5 km2).

The United Nations used some of the building in the park for its temporary headquarters until its permanent headquarters in Manhattan was completed in 1951.

The Towers and Unisphere were used in the movie "Men In Black."

The first season of "The Amazing Race" used the park as the final destination.
