Observatory Towers

A relic of the New York World’s Fair, towering over Flushing Meadows is the twin Observatory Towers of the New York State Pavilion. In the decades after the Fair closed it remains an abandoned and badly neglected relic of the Fair, with its roof gone the once bright floors and walls are almost faded away. If you’ve seen Men In Black, then you might remember the alien they call a Bug climbing one of the towers.
