Tent of Tomorrow at Flushing Meadows' New York State Pavillion Painted American Cheese Yellow

1,600 gallons of "American Cheese Yellow" paint now covers the Tent of Tomorrow in the New York State Pavillion, located in the Flushing Meadows–Corona Park for the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair.

After 8,000 hours and 1,600 gallons of paint, the New York State Pavilion’s Tent of Tomorrow is camera-ready for its spot on Open House New York Weekend. The Daily News reports that Philip Johnson‘s iconic World’s Fair structure in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is now sporting a fresh coat of “American Cheese Yellow” paint. The job “included power-washing off decades of rust, applying primer and the historically accurate paint while working on a platform suspended 100 feet in the air,” and it cost $3 million.
