Melissa Plaut Says

There's a panorama, like an actual miniature reproduction, of New York City and the five boroughs at the Queens Museum of Art. I'm pretty sure it's the last and largest intact panorama—they used to get made, I guess for world fairs or something like that. There's also art there, but the real star is this panorama. The lights shining on it are supposed to recreate the hours of the day and how light would fall. It's cool, just perfectly recreated with every single building. There's a five dollar admission fee, and it's located next to all the World's Fair stuff outside, like the big globe by Shea Stadium.
