The massive Panorama of the City of New York at the Queens Museum of Art, built for the '64 World's Fair, is now a 9,335-square-foot symbol of the mortage meltdown. For a new museum exhibit on housing, hundreds of those plastic triangles used to keep pizza boxes from collapsing have been painted pink and placed on blocks where there have been three or more foreclosures. "Hundreds of these pink stigmata cover Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, East New York and Canarsie in Brooklyn like an invading army," the Times notes. There are two in Manhattan. [NYT]
