New York City Panorama at Queens Museum

The Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows Corona Park is the setting for the New York City Panorama which was first displayed during the 1964/65 World's Fair. I've seen pictures of it on flickr and always meant to visit and see it for myself.

On President's Day the museum stayed open so during my visit to the park to see the snow, I stopped in to take some pictures of this special exhibit.
