A few months ago in the PARA newsletter #
64 there was an article regarding the old PAB. The subject was the
removal of all the doorknobs throughout the sixteen floors of the
building. The doorknobs which have the original Port Authority LOGO.
They were then going to be polished and restored by the Port Authority
Machine Shop. Charlie Sadowski and I were given the assignment.
There were well over a thousand at least.
The doorknobs were then set in acrylic. When the project was completed
the doorknobs were presented to VIPíS in both states. This all took
place sometime between 1968 and 1970. I have many more great memories of
my 28 years with the PORT AUTHORITY. GOD BLESS THE PORT AUTHORITY OF NY
