Lunar Module Model
From Central Park Historical Society Encyclopedia
In 1979, marking the 10th Anniversary of man's landing on the moon, the Rotary Club with assistance from Grumman erected a model of The Grumman Aerospace Corps. Lunar Module near the Bethpage Railroad Station. The model was 1/10 the size of the 23 foot original. Unfortunately, despite its bulletproof encasement, vandals nearly destroyed the structure and it was removed and returned to Grumman. The model is now on display in the Bethpage Library because the Central Park Historical Society realized it needed a proper place to be displayed in our community.
