Progress Report for the New York State Pavilion Paint Project  October 2016

We are all very excited to close out 2016 with continued great promise towards the future of the pavilion.

Our latest Open Gate event on October 16th in conjunction with Open House New York (OHNY) and NYC Parks went very well once again!  The weather was beautiful and over 500 people visited the pavilion in four hours!  That's over 7000 people who went through the gates these past three seasons!

The interest and support from the community remain strong.

Our work continues. We will carry on our quest to preserve the pavilion. Next season we hope to touch up and repair painted areas including the application of matching American Cheese yellow paint. We hope you get to visit the park and see the pavilion close up.
