Dear Editor:

Concerning your article “Is anyone, even the USTA, FMCP’s friend?” (Feb. 28) the old question that comes to mind is the renovation or lack thereof of the New York State Pavilion. Considering the fact that in recent years both the Queens Museum and the Theatre in the Park have both been upgraded and the Theatre in the Park is physically connected to the NYS Pavilion, why has this site never been included in any rehabilitation project where the other sites have received monies from various sources. The NYS Pavilion is an eyesore now and it would be a great asset to fix up and get the elevator going to the balconies. The Parks Department is already in control of it and could run the Pavilion for an entrance fee. Just a thought from a native New Yorker and Queens resident.
