New York State Pavilion (Images of Modern America)

The New York State Pavilion is a legacy of the 19641965 New York Worlds Fair. It is located in the southwest corner of Flushing Meadow Corona Park, where the Long Island Expressway crosses over the Grand Central Parkway. From these freeways alone, the pavilion is seen by hundreds of thousands of motorists per day and is a symbol of the Empire State, the Eiffel Tower of Queens. From the observation towers that offer spectacular views of Queens and beyond; to the expansive Tent of Tomorrow, which showcased the worlds largest map (of New York State); to the stunning Queens Theatre in the Park, New York State Pavilion is an insightful look at this iconic landmark, with many spectacular historic color photographs, published here for the first time.
