I hope this survived somewhere

Here's a view looking inside the main entrance of he Republic of China Pavilion at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. This unusual shot has a great view of the beautiful phoenix wall panel inside the entrance.

Other smaller pieces of the building have shown up from time to time, so here's hoping that somewhere there's a Chinese restaurant or some other place providing a home to this panel. It would be a shame if it has been lost.


  1. The panel was given to St. John's University in 1965 and is presently in the Chin Ying Asian Library on the Queens campus. Great photo!

  2. Thanks for the info - that was welcome news indeed.
