I've been doing more planning for Spring dates for my Queens: The World's (Fair) Borough tour. In doing so, I came across this segment from Pat Kieran's radio program ('The Ride Home') from April 2014 in which he interviewed me about my visit to the 50th anniversary event in Flushing Meadows park.
We discussed the state of the landmarked New York State Pavilion, and whether it had the potential to be revived. Just a couple years later, that dream is progressing, thanks to a non-profit called People for the Pavilion, which works on this cause. They aim to give the structure a second life, so that it can serve as a great public space again. On my tour, we discuss many of the proposals and look at photos of them.
I loved discovering this treasure, and I hope you will too.
