  1. 16 million for NYSP!

    I disagee. It specifcally mentions the NYSP, as well as other parts of the park: The $16,468,030 grant was provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the New York Office of Management and Budget and will be used for repairs at the pavilion as well other storm-damaged areas of the park.
  2. I didn't see this posted yet. The city is getting 16 million bucks to restore/stablize the NYSP. Finally, Queens is getting some R-E-S-P-E-C-T! https://qns.com/story/2018/11/27/schumer-gillibrand-announce-16-million-federal-funds-restore-nys-pavilion-flushing-meadows/?fbclid=IwAR2Ow-Hc_MqkrreOfkkT8qjYZerTa2WxRrRVfGRPzZb-vPwCr6lhPWvndtc -KK

  5. Where's the Fair? film

    It's a shame you missed a golden opportunity to release it for the 50th anniversary. The mainstream media was all over the 64/65 Fair in 2014/15.

  8. A visit to FMCP on July 4, 1971

    Around 1972-73, my family visited the park from our home in Howard Beach. We had a picnic and rode on a glide-a-ride that was still in use. I think it cost 25 or 50 cents cents a person for a an extended trip around the park. I remember a bird sanctuary on the grounds. Is that possible? _Karyn
  9. Who's Minding the Store?

    So cool. This poster is also in one of the "beach blanket" movies. From 64/65 I would imagine.

  11. Sad news to report - Michael Pender has passed away

    I too remember meeting Mike at the Adria show. A very kind man. My heartfelt condolences to the Pender family.
  12. I didn't see anything here about the damage done last weekend at the NYS Pavillion. I can't figure out how to post links...you'll have to google it. Sorry!
  13. Hello.....again

    There is a section on this site called The Souvenir Shop. Try posting your question there. '64Worlds Fair prices IMHO have been flat to down. Perhaps all the 50th anniversary hoopla, the values will rise. Who knows....
