Another Big Sphere


Yesterday I brought you the Unisphere way out in Queens, and today I bring you this similar looking monument. Located on Columbus Circle in front of the Trump International Hotel And Tower (the building to the right in the picture), this sphere looks to be a ripoff of the Unisphere, right down to the three rings encircling it. Those were originally meant to represent the orbits of Sputnik, John Glenn and Telstar, I believe. Leave it to Trump to rip off someone else. If this sphere has a name, I can't find it...

A unisphere is a unisphere...no need to call anything a rip-off. That's like saying a circle is a rip-off of a circle. How about appreciating the beauty of a landmark in NYC...a highly polished piece of art.
