The New York State Pavilion was built by Philip Johnson for the 1964 World's Fair and subsequently abandoned to time. And though the fate of the famous structure was once in doubt, it is now definitely on the way to being saved and rebuilt, according to Brownstoner Queens. The Tent of Tomorrow (one third of the overall structure) was opened to the public for the first time in years at the 50th anniversary of the fair last spring. Now, the walls of the tent have been restored and this spring the crowd-funded New York State Pavilion Paint Project began to repaint the Pavilion's exterior "crown" in bright yellow.
