The once great Federal Pavilion

Recommended Posts

In 1976 my wife, cousin and I went to the park and played around the once beautiful Federal Pavilion. I layed on the steps and did a end of the world picture. How could the City let this happen, I found the main entrance sign under a pile of the building. I posted this years ago but hear it is again.

My favorite Building especially at night. I last saw the US Federal Building in the late summer of 72 before heading to Southern Calif. for College. Really is a shame that it was left to rot

The real question is: For what could it have been used? Office building? Museum? Library? Even if it could have been leased for free, if the effort had been made, it would still be with us today. A small cost to put new locking doors on it....security system, etc.

Imagine this article being about the United States Pavilion being used as a branch of the NY Public Library...
