Bayside was also the site of alleged apparitions of the Virgin Mary to a housewife named Veronica Lueken. These events took place on the grounds of St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside, but in 1975 she and her followers were evicted, with the vigils (on the eves of important feast days) then taking place in Flushing Meadows Park, at the old Vatican Pavilion site during the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. The events and its apocalyptic pronouncements have always been condemned by the Roman Catholic diocese of Brooklyn as lacking authenticity. Following a heart attack in late 1978, and other health problems, Lueken attended the vigils infrequently. She died in 1995, but some followers remain, with the park vigils still continuing in the absence of the seer.
