  1. I was lucky enough to attend the 64 fair dozens of times as a teen. I joined this website in 2004 and have been here mostly in the backround ever since.
  2. Very nice shots.Strange how Russia would be invited and within a short time be at war with Japan.
  3. Two men were hit by lightning during a pick up soccer game near the zoo in Flushing Meadow Park yesterday during a sudden storm. Both sustained injuries but, are expected to survive. During the 64 Fair the area was the automotive zone.
  4. Robert kopple

    The Robert Kopple that first proposed the 64 Fair ?
  5. Which cover do you like best?

    My mom rode the parachute ride at the fair so I would choose E. Besides the ride is still in existence at Coney Island ,one of the few remnants left from the 30 fair.
  6. Uniroyal Giant Tire in the Wild

    Could this be taken after the giant wheel was moved from the fair ?
  7. Ironic that New Orleans would host another fair in 1984 100 years later.My ex and I had plans to attend on our honeymoon but the costs were excessive so we opted to honeymoon in California instead.
  8. Another visit to the park

    Used to go to the park a lot but I haven`t been in a few years. Where was the luminiere located ?
  9. Concert Time

    The other big DJ in that era was Murray the K.I think he was on WINS AM before it changed its forum to all news
  10. Happy Birthday to the NYWF!!!

    Hard to believe 54 years have passed. We will never see an event like this in N.Y.C. again in the near future.
  11. One of the sadder moments of any visit to the Fair

    Same feeling when you walk out of Disney
  12. 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.
  14. Recently finished reading the Devil in the white city.These pictures bring the images to life. Thanks for posting.
