Queens preservationists are partnering with the Mets to save the New York State Pavilion, an iconic structure built for the 1964 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows Corona Park that has severely deteriorated over the years.
A portion of each ticket purchased for the Mets’ home game against the Giants on Friday, Aug. 1 at 7:10 p.m. will be donated to the People for the Pavilion, an organization dedicated to preserving and reusing the site.
Hmmm. The Mets have been sharing Flushing Meadows with the Pavilion in that condition for decades. But NOW they want to do something to help? I call B.S. on this. Save FMCP summed it up best:
Mets want to save the Pavilion? Then they should tell the city to keep the subsidies they're getting for the mall. http://t.co/HnKq7KVRze— Save FlushingMeadows (@SaveFMCP) April 13, 2014
