Because of this, New York City would be an ideal place for a World's Fair museum, and having a museum is a goal that our organization has. The World's Fair Historical Society proposes that we use the Mezzanine level for a permanent museum on International Expositions, displaying exhibits in a chronological order, from the first world's fair in London in 1851 to present times, in the city that was home to our country's first.
The 1964 level of the towers with a panel that shows what the view would have looked like during the Fair. We envision the panel being 360 degrees, running around the tower so visitors would get the entire view.

Again, we emphasize that the first step before any proposal is considered is that of SAVING THE BUILDING, which needs to be done as soon as possible.
With strong hope that this building can be saved,

First, LET'S GET IT SAVED, and under protected status, and worry about what should be done with it after that step has been taken. The New York State Parks Department told us that it is eligible for protected status. We urge officials of New York City and New York City Residents to push for this as soon as possible.

Then, once that has been done, the World's Fair Historical Society offers its; own proposal that has been drawn up around the question of how can we best support and benefit the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation with the building's renovation?
Our Basic idea is simple:
