Trylon & Perisphere Gravesite

Recommended Posts

The article leaves the unanswered question of why he had his gravestone decorated that way.  If you're going to write the article, you must at least answer that question.  

I kept looking for page two.

(They could have at least listed his birth date, so we could figure his age in 1939.  Sloppy journalism.)

Too lazy to seek out his family and ask.

I can't find any reference to his involvement with the fair, but maybe a deep dive into committee rosters would reveal him.  There was a Temple of Religion, so you might expect his tombstone to be modeled on that if he were involved.

This was the topic of a thread five or six years ago.  I contacted Kensico Cemetery at that time and they had absolutely no idea why this cemetery monument resembles the Trylon and Perisphere.  All they were able to offer is the name of the burial and the fact that the lot is provided with perpetual care.  As I recall there is only one grave on this lot.

Kensico is the final resting place of many remarkable New Yorkers including the great Lou Gehrig.
