Queens Museum of Art


New York City Building, Queens, New York 11368

Located with Flushing Meadow is the Queens Museum of Art. A museum covering Contemporary and other forms of art from the 20th Century. This is a treat to visit should you be within the park. Recently I got to experience its multilevel facility along with its presentation of found artifacts of the building of Flushing Meadow itself.

Also within are many somewhat interactive experiences as well as “The Panorama of New York City.” Its the world’s largest architectural model, containing 895,000 individual structures. It was built at the request of Robert Moses (circa 1964-1965), whom in this site’s webmaster’s personal opinion was one of the greatest artists in envisioning what this great city could be from what it once was. He was once our Parks Commissioner.

The Panorama of New York City is really something else! Should you be a tourist or a native you really need to see it. It captures virtually every corner, every building, every site of this city. Also, the lighting changes to show the scenery in a night time sort-of-perspective. City Lights come alive as the room’s lights dim.

Also note that this structure isn’t small at all…’it’s rather large. The model is about 9,335 square feet in size. Pretty big don’t you think?
