Get an in-depth look at a unique remnant of the 1964/1965 World’s Fair, the giant Panorama of the City of New York, inside the Queens Museum! The Queens Museum itself is a remnant of the fairgrounds for the 1939/1940 and 1964/1965 World’s Fairs, it was one of only a few permanent structures built for the fair and is the only remaining structure left from 1939. At both fairs the building housed the New York City Pavilion. Join the museum’s Registrar and Archives Manager and resident World’s Fair expert Louise Weinberg for a talk that will reveal all of the fascinating stories of the museum’s past. After a brief Q&A, Insiders will go inside the gallery of the Panorama of the City of New York, a giant 3-D model of all five boroughs of New York City. The to scale diagram stretches 9,335 square feet and encompasses every single building, street, park and some 100 bridges constructed prior to 1992.
