    First time I saw these. Funny pictures...had a good laugh.
  2. That's a replica of the Trylon and Perisphere to the left of the lamp post in the 1939 photo of Times Square.
  3. 45th Anniversary Today

    Happy 45th Anniversary!
  4. McBarge!?

    I never heard of the floating McDonalds before ...very interesting. Here's a link to a blog that says it is anchored in Burnaby, British Columbia. It shows 5 pictures of the barge (rusting away) taken in Feb., 2007. http://sanitarybag.blogspot.com/2007/02/mc...-execution.html
  5. Last Days of Shea

    Here's an article from today's NY TIMES about the last piece of Shea Stadium coming down. Click on "More Photos" to see pictures. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/19/sports/b...l?th&emc=th

  8. Julimar Farm

    I am truly amazed by the photographs of the gardens; It is hard to believe they are from 1964. The design and attention to detail is enchanting. Wonderful pictures.
  9. New York State Pavilion Tile Restoration

    Thanx. I think I will try to get there in the next week.
  10. NYSP Map Restoration Update

    Here is an article in today's NY Times about the Tent of Tomorrow. There's hope yet. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/07/nyregion...ml?ref=nyregion

    These pictures are the best I've seen. It was a surreal moment seeing the two men waving from the first tower...A photo reminiscent of many pic's from the Fair. Are those doors and that framework from a restaurant that was once there?
  12. I found this while browsing real estate for sale here in Forest Hills, NY. Click on "Views" for some great shots of FMCP and surrounding area. http://www.rentanapt.net/Fairview_2br_2 ... 12thFL.htm
  13. Oh, so sad!

    What an extraordinary photograph of the debris dumped in the Meadowlands. I had never seen it before. When I first saw it, I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach.
  14. Picture of the Day

    Here is a picture I posted last year that I took at Meadow Lake. The buildings in the background appear to be the same as the ones in your picture only taken from the opposite side. The buildings in my picture are located around 66th Ave. in Forest Hills. IMG_0335.JPG[/attachment:db016]
