panorama of the city of new york

September 13, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Tom Vanderbilt’s article at Design Observer got me to remember how much I enjoyed the Queens Musuem of Art’s Panorama of the City of New York. My friends Al and Debbie insisted on a visit while I was in Brooklyn a while ago. Completely worth it.

Feeling nostalgic, I hunted down a small but good Flickr set of the panorama. It’s not the same as hanging off the balcony above the teeny tiny city, but it does give an idea for how gorgeously detailed the panorama is.

Be sure to check out the QMA, should you ever get the chance. It’s surrounded by the artifacts of the 1964 World’s Fair (including the Unisphere!).
