To mark 50 years since the Worlds Fair was held in New York the iconic New York State Pavilion inside Flushing Meadows-Corona Park will briefly be open to the public next month.
On April 22, the popular Queens structure -- located next to the famous Unisphere -- will be open to the public for just three hours.
The occasion comes courtesy of a grassroots effort to keep the crumbling relic from being torn down.
The New York State Pavilion Paint Project Crew, a group of volunteers who work to preserve the structure, maintains the Pavilion with the permission of the city Parks Department and private donations.
Only a limited number of people will be allowed in.
The venue has been closed to the public since 1987.
