The New York State Pavilion in Flushing Meadows Corona Park

Speaking of Robert Moses, I just finished a photo chronicle on this landmark  at :

[b]Here are some free promo   photos for your book. I would buy it now, but  $51.00 for the Hard cover one is a little steep    for me.[/b]

Re: The New York State Pavilion in Flushing Meadows Corona Park

Thanks for posting your pictures! Anything that shines a light on this neglected landmark is a good thing.
Note that the soft cover book, at $32.95 and is just as good. It is priced at cost (zero profit - and only printed on demand); until I find another publisher.
The goal is to call attention to the pavilion and prompt its custodians to take a more proactive approach for the restoration of this asset that has been neglected for too long. To this end I've added the history and quite a bit of off the beaten path information to accompany the photos.
Unlike the Eiffle Tower, built for the Paris World's Fair, which has had secondary economic benefits for its city,  the New York State Pavilion has become an advertisement for what not to do to a landmark. In terms of prominance the only difference between two is that The New York State Pavilion is seen by far more people on a daily basis.

Re: The New York State Pavilion in Flushing Meadows Corona Park

As far as my trust in you solo demo: i want to say its bad. Guitar out of tune, sloppy playing and bad mastering. I can do better than this. And i told Jojan to record the bass so we can collaborate. Not to show that im better "cover maker" than him or anything...

Re: The New York State Pavilion in Flushing Meadows Corona Park

I am tired of hearing about how this coming police state of America is going to be like Nazi Germany... Hitler and his Nazi Germany had no desire to take over the world. Hitler was only interested in retaking the land that was taken from Germany and given to Poland after WWI. When Hitler invaded Poland in 1939, it was the British Empire and France that declared war on Germany.

There are a lot of great used bikes out there that have been perfectly taken care of.
