A recent visit to the New York State Pavilion in Flushing Meadows found the “modern ruin” in the midst of a makeover. The Pavilion was designed for the 1964 World’s Fair by famed architect Philip Johnson.
The crowd-funded New York State Pavilion Paint Project is restoring the Pavilion in an attempt to return it to its former glory. The repainting is slowly but surely making a difference. See photos and read all about it on Brownstoner Queens.
