The preservation group promotes its plan to save the rusting structures
The first meeting held by People for the Pavilion, a new group seeking to preserve and repurpose some of Queens’ most iconic structures, drew about 100 supporters last weekend. Saimaan Khan, left, Matthew Silva and Christian Doran are behind the effort. A Parks Department session on the future of the old World’s Fair landmarks also demonstrated support for their preservation.
