A proposal to make Flushing Meadows-Corona Park more green is making some World's Fair historians downright queasy.
The dormant Fountains of the Fairs - a series of pools south of the Unisphere - would be either ripped up or covered to make way for a large, grassy festival space, according to Parks Department plans.
And while the agency has promised to preserve the World's Fair core, removing the fountains would destroy its essence, said Greg Godfrey, president of the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park World's Fair Association.
"The fairs were designed on axial models based on the history of city planning," Godfrey said. "It helped create order in a very large landscape."
