The Marine Amphitheatre Stood Here

Queens: Flushing Meadows-Corona Park/
North side of Meadow Lake

"Broadway" Billy Rose staged his "Aquacade" water show at an amphitheater that stood here. The show, for the 1939 World's Fair, featured water ballet, diving champions, and a man-made Niagara. The structure served as the Hawaii and Florida pavilions for the 1964 World's Fair. It was demolished in 1996, after a stint as a city-run swimming pool.
