2. New York State Pavilion

The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation has begun exploring options for restoration of Queens’ quirkiest structure, the New York State Pavilion. Most recently, the New York Structural Steel Painting Contractors Association donated their services to re-paint the building’s iconic crown in the original shade of “American Cheese” yellow, brightening the Philip Johnson-designed landmark just in time for the 50th Anniversary of the closing of the fair. Visit during the anniversary celebration, which coincides with OHNY Weekend, for a rare peek inside the gates. Long lines are expected; arrive early!

  1. Hi! Do you have to join something or sign up somewhere to visit the TWA terminal? I’m changing my flight back to NYC to land at JFK on the 18th just to see it.

      It’s open access, so you won’t need a reservation. But we would recommend going early to line up, it’s guaranteed to be packed!
