I found this on Youtube today. It was taken after the hurricane and has some fabulous views of the towers.

I hope folks can find an extra $5-10 or so to help get this building in better shape. The better it looks the more likely it can be saved!!!

Bill Young and I are thrilled to be reuniting for our third book on the 1964-65 Fair. We're also thrilled that this one will be in color. We don't have the exact details as to price and when it will be out but I'll post them as available. I just got off the phone with the publisher and haven't come down from Cloud 9 yet!

If anyone can donate anything, even $5, this is one of the more worthwhile projects that has surfaced on this site. Please help if you can. If there's any hope of salvaging the pavilion this project is essential.

My Greyhound Escorter is done .... It is fully restored and driveable.
A complete off the frame restoration, it's like brand new!
Just putting the finishing touches on it.
Thanks to the few that helped me and no thanks to those who never responded to emails or requests for photos.
I will be "Showcasing" the Escorter in a HUGE way for ALL to see ....
Details to follow soon!

Please forgive me if I am out-of-line in starting this thread and the powers that be may remove it if it is not in keeping with the tone of this site, but I just want to say I am stunned and heartbroken about the terrible news coming from Connecticut. I began my teaching career 36 years ago in New Milford, Connecticut, which is near Danbury and Newtown. I spent five years there and loved the area. I feel overwhelmed by the pain inflicted on this community, those innocent children and their grieving families and friends. And I am so proud to be a part of a profession that produced teachers and administrators as decent, caring and courageous as those who gave their lives for their children in that school on Friday.
I find I cannot really think of much else right now. And I suppose I did not quite know where to turn to express my thoughts so I started this thread. It has nothing to do with fairs but fairs don't feel very important to me right now.

No, that would have been the Perisphere itself.

It is ironic that events which are designed to bring people together and celebrate diversity sometimes become so divisive. In 2013, it is unacceptable for the world to stand by when any group of people is targeted for persecution by any government and especially those which to host world events such as the Olympics or an exposition.
