  1. Is the GM building from this fair similar to the one in 1939 ?
  2. Magic Skyway Mustang on display

    Brings back memories of my lost youth. Got my first Mustang in 1970 a brand new model .Not a classic like the 64 and 65 models but, it was the last smaller model before Mustangs lost their way in the 1970`s
  3. Flushing Meadows 1972 #5

    If memory serves me what ultimately doomed Lindsay was his poor response to the 1969 snowstorm .I don't think the voters ever forgave him for that faux pas.
  4. Looks like some of the supervisors I used to work for.
  5. Flushing Meadows 1972 #3

    The dome became a bird aviary.
  6. Flushing Meadows 1972 #2

    Raloh thanks for these and all your wonderful pictures.I attended 2 weddings at the Port Authority bld ,both were in the basement.I took my kids to the Hall of Science a lot when they were little.It must have had an effect on them since my daughter became a teacher and my son became a doctor.
  7. Flushing Meadows 1972 #1

    One of the saddest days I remember was the day before the fair closed. I have visited the park hundreds of times since both on foot and bicycle. To this day I still remember where all the pavilions we all loved stood and appreciate the little that remains.
  8. Anyone remember where we parked?

    I remember strange experience I had while parked in Alexanders parking lot off Queens Blv`d and 63rd drive in Rego Park.Anyone remember Alexanders dept store ? Anyway I was in a spot waiting for my mom who was shopping.Parking was scarce and so a person was waiting for a spot someone was about to pull out of.As soon as the person pulled out another car swooped in a grabbed the spot before the guy waiting pulled in. The guy waiting jumped out of his car shaking his fist but, he forgot to take the car out of drive and it started forward and crashed into another car.Whenever I`m in a crowded lot I just look for the spot furthest away to avoid trouble.
  9. Space Park #1: X-15 and satellites.

    Some of the original rockets are still there today just outside of the Hall of Science.I believe they went through a refurbishment in the late 90`s.
  10. Wouldn`t it depend on the time of day this was shot? For instance if it was 2 P.M. on a weekday it would be in between rush hours and the visitors to the fair would have already arrived and. it was to early to leave
  11. The beautiful New York State Pavilion

    Great shot.
  12. New York City

    Panorama is still there in what is now called the Queens Museum. It has been updated a few times since the fair.
  13. Looks like the trylon and perishpere or the Unisphere.
  14. A Walk on Bourbon Street

    I recognize some of the cars in the first photo.1962 Caddy.1956 Ford, Volkswagon bus. 1963 Oldsmobile and an early sixties Truimph.
