They didn't destroy all of the buildings, only most of them. Real estate usually only increases in value while most people value historic preservation right up there with stubbing their toe if they even consider it. Time and profit kill the wonderful buildings. I've visited the old fair site in Queens a couple times on field trips. It was interesting. Apparently, Olympic games don't always cover their costs..

LOLS, sure, but that was about 14 years ago in middle school. Where they ever ended up at I couldn't say.
