New York State Pavillion

The New York State Pavillion refers to the three building structures shown above, which inclue an elipictical complex (in the background) and two observatory towers. It is located in Flushing Meadows and was built during the 1964 World's Fair, making it a pretty impressive architectural structure for the time. But even now the towers seem nice in the park, even though they really serve no purpose as I am not sure there is access to the observatory deck of the towers anymore.

Are these the towers used in the movie "Men in Black"?

Yes, as a matter of fact these towers were used in Men in Black. The film was shot on location in the area.

I have longed to see this once-majestic ruin for many years and will finally get to visit New York City this September. Hopefully if will not fall apart before then.
