Project Description

What would prompt several hundred adult New Yorkers—some of them living at great distances from the grassy lawns of Flushing Meadow Park, Queens—to take time out of a busy work day to come see the half-collapsed relic of a building now 50 years old? “It’s just such an iconic building,” says Martha Orbarch, just one of the many New Yorkers waiting to get in. Orbarch only dimly remembers Philip Johnson’s New York State Pavilion from her first visit here at the age of three. That year, the park played host to the World’s Fair for the second time since 1939—and ever since, the fair’s architectural legacy has been a boon and a burden to the borough, leaving a series of structures that everyone knows yet no one knows how to use.
