  1. I'm sure this link will go dead way before this thread goes away, but since found it (March 2017) here it is. https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/more-furniture-collectibles/collectibles-curiosities/architectural-models/1964-new-york-worlds-fair-kodak-pavilion-architectural-model/id-f_4369353/?utm_content=test&gclid=CP3y7ci429ICFVuBswod3u0O8w Can we have a link to the blog?
  2. If there's one thing NYC is good at, it's monetizing everything.
  3. That looks like some kind of telescoping arm that might have levers to aim that fire nozzle from the ground.
  4. Remember when heliports were going to be a thing? lol Sometimes, when I play GTA4, Liberty City, I'll land a copter on top of their version of the old Pan Am tower just for the hell of it. Their tiny version of the fair doesn't have the 64 heliport building, but the NY Pavilion is represented and you can climb the towers!
  5. Happy Birthday!
  6. Heck, people used to wear sport coats and nice dresses to baseball games. I couldn't imagine that now.
  7. Very true. I'm not a serious photographer and would never want the inconvenience. But I do hate the thought of living in a world where where traditional film is extinct.
  8. Wouldn't it be something if film made a comeback like vinyl?
  9. They sure did love the suffix "-rama" in that era, didn't they?
  10. I like the fireman's badge.
  11. Could be that no pavilion sponsor wanted another sponsor's signs inside their expensively-sponsored pavilion?
  12. Off the top of my head, I'm going to guess that fiberglass was first used on smaller boats, and it took a while before they were confident enough in the material to make bigger cruisers. Wonder when the first fiberglass boats were made? So it seems that early reinforced plastics were experimented with as far back as just before WWII, mass-produced fiberglass boats really only started appearing in the very late 50's and early 60's. That would explain why so many boats at the marina in 1964 appeared to be made of wood. http://www.materialstoday.com/composite-applications/features/50-years-of-reinforced-plastic-boats/
  13. Kind of amazing that they bothered disassembling, moving, and reassembling this building.
  14. It looks like it belongs on a college campus in Arizona in 1968.
  15. I was living in Queens when that was taken. Of course, I was 4 months old...
