What is that dome structure by the Helipad

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Judging from the location, I would guess it is the aviary, from the Queens Zoo. In the picture it appears solid, not an open air geodesic dome, as is the aviary, but even at the fair, there was no dome there, it was the location of the Avis Antique car ride.

Icedstitch, I'm glad you enjoyed my story. Fred and Expoboy are correct. The dome you see in that picture was the World's Fair Pavilion in the 64 season and the Churchill Center in the 65 season. After the fair, the dome part of that structure was moved to that location to become the Aviary in the Queens Zoo, where it still stands today.

Hi icedstitch,

Here's a slightly restored version. You can see the geodesic dome's structure better. Welcome to the forum.
