Nothing new I'm afraid, gonna wait a bit and see if I can find any thing that hasn't been recycled too many times already.

But fear not, that won't stop me for long.

love the Space Needle shot, I was there when it was brand new, so cool.

just a few miles down the road from the bear is another cultural reference that might be closer to an icon??

You'll have to take my word, but on the right is Alberto Masi on his bike and on the left is the Vigorelli.

As noted, no real restrictions here, although if cornered, I'm going with Webster's "widely known symbol" as my definition of choice regarding this thread.

In that case, both your submissions fit the bill, do they not?

I was 7 or 8 when the World’s Fair happened. I have memories of the area from before the structures were built.

You guys are good. One day and many excellent shots!

It is good, but also a bit unsettling to see the tower in Pisa without the cables.
@ascherer a chrome steel framed bike in front of a monument constructed by US Steel on a beautiful day. Although, I don't know if the Unisphere is all stainless steel or aluminum and stainless. No doubt about it being an icon.
