Closing Bell: Take This Survey on the Future of the NY State Pavilion


    It seems like everybody’s talking about the future of the now-underutilized New York State Pavilion, in the hopes that it can once again be an asset for Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Now it’s your turn to share your vision for the complex! The New York Parks Department released this survey “in order to understand your vision for the future of the Pavilion.” Parks held a series of listening sessions regarding the Pavilion in late January and also presented on recent structural studies that were completed on the Tent of Tomorrow and Observation Towers. According to People for the Pavilion, there’s an overwhelming consensus so far to preserve and reutilize — rather than tear down — the iconic structures, designed by architect Philip Johnson for the 1964-65 World’s Fair.
