  1. The wait is almost over!

    Sound the brass, roll the drum!
  2. Two young NY actors having the time of their lives, although it had to get a little monotonous with how many shows they did a day. She looks a little like Maryanne from Gilligan's Island.
  3. Looks like a nice night for the fireworks

    Precursor to Epocts's "Illuminations". Of course the whole fair was a precursor to Epcot.
  4. High over the Fair

    I guess that was taken by a drone.
  5. I went to the fair in '65 when I was six years old. I have vague memories of the Autofair. In this horribly damaged slide that's me on the left with my mother and my brother in front of a vehicle I believe was part of the Chrysler area.
  6. The Probability Machine at IBM

    Love to see a video of this presentation. Just to hear the guy's patter.
  7. So where is this taken from ?
  8. Two NYWF64 survivors

    And if the tire gone wasn't bad enough, eventually they only used half the gondolas...
  9. Two NYWF64 survivors

    Rode the ferris wheel sans tire on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City in either the late 60's or early 70s.
  10. I visited the fair in 1965 when I was six years old. Some of my most vivid earliest memories are of the fair, I distinctly remember IBM, Bell Tel, GM, US, GE, and of course Small World and eating at some restaurant in the Belgian Village. These pictures are pretty much burned into my brain as one of the most amazing places and times I've experienced. So I come here, like so many of us, to re-visit my past.
  11. Anyone one ever hear of this fair? http://www.boweryboyshistory.com/2016/09/the-bronx-worlds-fair-of-1918-the-failure-which-became-a-magical-park.html
  12. Is the guy on the right of the top picture holding some kind of remote control in his right hand? Did he accompany Tik Tok and steer it?
  13. Here is some more info from another WF site...http://www.nywf64.com/gm01.shtml
  14. Panorama Featured in WONDERSTRUCK

    I couldn't really tell from the trailer, is it appropriate for a 9-10 year old?
  15. Giant Tire builder?

    Yes I remember riding the wheel on Steel Pier in the 70's. And every other car was missing. Here is a picture of it intact on the pier 1968...
