NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Once a focal point of Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, the storied New York State Pavilion will be getting a facelift in Queens.  

The city broke ground Friday on the reconstruction of the three rusting and decaying observation decks, as well as the steel and concrete Tent of Tomorrow.

The pavilion was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson and gained renewed fame in the movie "Men In Black."
