Space Shuttle Enterprise's new Pavilion at the Intrepid Museum

This week marked the end of a 9-month hiatus for the Space Shuttle Enterprise.  Hurricane Sandy toppled the original housing of the Pavilion in October, 2012.  Tuesday afternoon, I was granted admission to the Pavilion to photograph the new exhibits and the Shuttle itself.  Wednesday, I returned to capture the Opening Ceremonies.  Here are some of the images.  (Click on any image for a closer look).

 Exhibit cases are located throughout the Pavilion, directly under the Space Shuttle Enterprise which is mounted 10' from the floor.
