Hi all,

Good news. I just launch a new and improved website at and on there you will find a new trailer for the documentary. I can not thank you all enough for the support you have already given to the film. I am working hard editing it, and with your continued support I am sure I will reach my goal and beyond. Please continue to share this project with your friends and follow the progress here and on Facebook.

Hey everyone,

I have been fortunate over the past few days to receive some really good press on this project.

Here are the links to check them out.

They include a short spot on WCBS 880 radio. I will also be featured in an article with the Queens Chronicle later this week.

Hello, I Am currently a student at NYIT, majoring in architecture. I want to focus my thesis project on New York State Pavilion. I am researching for all kind of information, but I NEED SOME help, finding original floor plans and sections. That will be very useful. Thank you!

I remember seeing bands play in 64/65 when I was 15/16, I had forgotten about the Texaco map. I hope the entire pavilion is restored! Like the success with the High Line.
