New York Governor plans to demolish Jacob Javits Center Auto home to build housing, hotels and museums

Governor of New York, Andrew M. Cuomo has big plans for the Jacob Javits Center, to build housing, hotels and museums but to demolish the existing Auto Show home.

Mr. Fowle has been working to repair and redesign for the past six years.“The waste of creative energy, money and material that would result in its being torn down is painful to think about,” Mr. Fowle said during a walk through the center last week. “When you’re worrying about every detail — trying to do the best you can to make something that represents the city — it’s like having the rug pulled out from under you.”

Conventions would be staged instead at a larger center to be built at the Aqueduct racetrack in Jamaica, Queens, with $4 billion from Genting, a Malaysian gambling company.
