Another Contest About Buildings

Last week's contest asked for the height of the Empire State Building in the scale model of New York City from the 1964 World's Fair, which is still in place in Flushing Meadow Park, with the model built on a scale of 1 inch of NYC to every 100 feet.

The answer is, 15 inches.
Think how small King Kong would be.

The winner was Blake, who sensed a trick to the question, but there was none. Blake wins a $10 gift certificate to Small World Music.

This week's contest has to do with a big building in Ithaca. It was built on the Cornell campus circa 1915, and at the time had the largest pillarless room in the world. It housed a concert 30 years ago that is in the local news this month. What is it?

A randomly-selected answer will win a $10 gift certificate to Small World Music, one of the smallest pillarless rooms in the world, at 614 W. State St., down the driveway. Send your entry directly to Small World Music at

Thanks, and good luck -
