The Panorama at the Queens Museum of Art

       Unless you’re at the top of the Empire State Building on a clear day, just about the only place you can see all 5 boroughs of New York City at the same time is in The Panorama at the Queens Museum of Art.  You may have seen it in the recent movie New Year’s Eve; Michelle Pfeiffer walked on it (which, of course, we regular people cannot do).  

       The Panorama was built by Robert Moses for the 1964 World’s Fair, and includes almost 900,000 structures that were constructed before 1992 (a major update that year added things like the Twin Towers, which still stand there).  And, for a modest fee, you can adopt a building in The Panorama the contribute toward ongoing care and maintenance.  Above is a photo of The Panorama; I’ll write a couple of additional posts to take you through the boroughs. 

       If you want to see what New York City and its buildings are all about, it’s definitely worth a visit.  In the meantime, you can see and read more at
