  1. New York State Pavilion book

    Thank you Mike Kraus! Your picture contribution is in there.
  2. New York State Pavilion book

    My book on the New York State Pavilion has finally been published by Arcadia and is available through Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/State-Pavilion-Images-Modern-America/dp/1467122432/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1413427380&sr=8-1&keywords=new
  3. Good bye and thank you, Ray Dashner :-(

    Thank you Ray
  4. A different angle on the New York State Pavilion

    Yes Bill that would help if you can get a clear close-up shot facing Theaterama. I took some photos of Rob Bianco's model in January when we were at the QTIP event, but that was through plexiglass. I didn't know you had a model also. When I was at the Arcadia office on February 7th they said your color World's Fair book had already sold out the first 1,200 production run. I'll be back at the NYSP this Saturday to help with the painting effort and hope to catch you on the 22nd.

  6. A different angle on the New York State Pavilion

    Hey Bill, that's a nice clean view of Rauschenberg's Skyway - would you have a copy I can use? I should be done with the book in 2 weeks: Still searching for a shot of Rosenquist's World's Fair Mural (the one with Uncle Sam's hat)

  10. Any list of attendance by attraction?

    Impressive numbers for the NYSP only a 22% drop from '64 to '65 while the Fair overall dropped 58% and GM dropped 45% Considering the NYSP had over a dozen live shows a day. Two other interesting numbers I've heard recited : 100,000 visitors per year to the roller skate rink in the post Fair TOT (March 17, 1970-July, 1974) 100,000 visitors per year to QTIP post the 1993 remodel

  12. LAX Theme Building = NYS?

    You said it Bill. Lucky I took these shots on May 17, 2013. I was wondering why they were closed this Christmas. It brings to mind some earlier comment as to why the LAX Theme Building can be a success while the NYSP can only be a failure based on location, but you can get to the NYSP by subway and LA will probably will never get light rail to LAX. One of the contradictions brought up at last weeks Parks Dept. public outreach for the NYSP the success of QTIP was attributed to its easy access while the TOT was mentioned as hard to get to. Interestingly when there were live concerts at the TOT a free tram ride from station to "door" was provided (also one of the suggestions provided).

    LAX Encounter restaurant: In the backgroung you can see that circular grouping of 100' tall 10' diameter towers that generate no revenue on a sq ft basis per se Worth a visit:
