New York Panorama
Even though these pictures are not very good, I thought I would show the Panorama of the City of New York, which I saw last weekend in the Queens Museum and thought was so interesting!
This is information from the Queens Museum website - Built by Robert Moses for the 1964 World’s Fair, this 9,335 square foot architectural model includes every single building constructed before 1992 in all five boroughs; that is a total of 895,000 individual structures. The Panorama was built by a team of 100 people working for the architectural model makers Raymond Lester Associates in the three years before the opening of the 1964 World’s Fair.
