The Tent of Tomorrow as seen in the past
Looking at the derelict hulk of the New York State Pavilion as it stands rotting away in Queens today, it's hard to remember it as it once looked. All of the multi-colored panels were removed years ago as a safety hazard, leaving behind only the rusting cables that once held them in place. The city is looking at ways to preserve the building - or demolish it, depending on who you listen to - so I guess there's a glimmer of hope, small as it is, that someday we can see the tent look this way again in the future.
