It is the best preserved of Roman colonial cities in the Middle East. This column from Roman ruins in the city of Jerash was presented to the New York World's Fair and the people of New York City by King Hussein in friendship and in commemoration of the Jordanian participation in the World's Fair. The column can still be visited today on its site in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
