Most of the pavilions designed for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair were created to last just two short seasons before being demolished or sold off for scrap.  A few, however, were built to be disassembled and relocated to new homes for new purposes after the closure of The Fair in late 1965.

Today, these remaining pavilions are a lasting reminder of the event which took place in the heart of Queens, New York...but also create new memories for younger generations as they continue to serve their new-found purposes throughout the world.

As the generation which actually attended The Fair ages gracefully, it is up to younger World's Fair fans to see the importance of preserving these relics for the enjoyment of future generations. Some of these pavilions have seen better days, falling into disrepair as their original purposes fade into the ether of time.  Others have seen increased interest since the 50th anniversary of The Fair and are finding new purpose in their communities. Only through your involvement will these amazing examples of midcentury architecture and design remain available to their communities.

My goal is to visit and document as many of these remaining World's Fair pavilions as I can and spread the word on how we can all get involved with keeping them on the map. Join me as I travel around the country to find what is left of The Fair.
