Beneath these stone is the 9,000 square-foot Texaco map of New York State made with 567 terrazzo mosaic panels, each weighing 440 pounds and the same size as the ones you are now standing on. It is a 4,000 times enlargement of the Texaco touring map and shows all the same cities, towns, highways, roads, rivers, lakes, and Texaco stations.
The stones hold a fabric membrane in place to protect the badly damaged map from further deterioration.
A representation of the Texaco logo hangs near where travel guides once offered information and a special World's Fair edition of the Texaco New York State Touring Map.
