  1. What if you threw a party and nobody came?

    If this was a weekday the majority of people would be at work or school.May was too early for most people to be on vacation or off from school.

    Happy birthday Bill. Thanks for all the pictures and info.I thought I knew a lot about the fair but your knowledge helped me learn so much more.
  3. Recently finished reading the Devil in the white city.These pictures bring the images to life. Thanks for posting.
  4. Feeling lucky?

    Wins DJ Murray the K was making an appearance at the fair in the spring of 1964.I was walking around the Unisphere with a friend when I saw a limo pass.I yelled out ,"There`s Murray the K. A mob of people surrounded the Limo and it turned out to be some poor Fair official.
  5. The Tower of Light, July 1965

    Great Shot.
  6. Both wonderful and sad at the same time.
  7. Who can pinpoint this location at the Fair?

    Entrance to the lake amusement area from the industrial area of the fair.
  8. Is the GM building from this fair similar to the one in 1939 ?
  9. 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

    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.
  11. Looks like some of the supervisors I used to work for.

    The dome became a bird aviary.

    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.

    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.
