Stunning…I'm not sure what the area is like now (it's been many years since I've been there), but I used to love walking around what was the old NY World's Fair grounds.  The sense that something great was once there, but only remnants hinting of what that was--it always felt beautifully sad to me, and at times almost post-apocalyptic.
