  1. Futurama 64/65 Inspired?

    I always wondered about the wildlife that would have been consumed in the maw of that Futurama road building machine
  2. Meet Me in St. Louis in theaters

    This Sunday and Wednesday (Dec 8 and 11), Meet Me in St. Louis will be in theaters. Get your technicolor fill of the 1904 Fair. https://www.fathomevents.com/events/meet-me-in-st-louis-75th-anniversary-1944
  3. Another aerial view from early 1964

    Considering the seemingly glacial pace of changes at Disney World, it's incredible that something as large as the NYWF was built at all, and unimaginable that any company would put that kind of money into pavilions that would exist for only 2 years.
  4. Yesterday's outage

    Thanks for the update. Is there a way I can contribute to the hosting fees? I feel like I should toss in a few shekels for the daily entertainment.
  5. Some good news for the NYSP. A $24 million stabilization and restoration project broke ground today. Members of the NYSP Paint Project are interviewed https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2019/11/08/city-making-major-investment-to-preserve-remnants-of-1964-worlds-fair/ https://wcbs880.radio.com/articles/news/new-york-state-pavilion-getting-facelift
  6. For fans of the Transportation Area

    Let's have a liter of beer and test drive a new Chrysler.
  7. Riddle me this

    Is that designated horse parking?
  8. Jim Henson

    It's mentioned here: http://www.nywf64.com/skf08.shtml
  9. "Walt and the World's Fairs"

    Sadly, on the wrong coast to catch this. Any chance video will be available afterwards?
  10. Looks like the Chrysler paint scheme for 1965.
  11. Undeveloped film from 1964

    My dad recently passed, and my siblings and I have been scanning and sharing pictures of him, so there's a chance your kids will want them.
  12. Undeveloped film from 1964

    I'm torn on my digital preservation efforts. I feel like I should be curating my collections more since giant piles of pictures will be too much trouble for someone else to sort through and wind up ignored, but on the other hand, the random unimportant images are often the ones here that are most valuable for filling in an undocumented corner of the fair.
  13. Get your tickets right here!

    After staring at the the shirt on the guy in the foreground, I want a pack of Fruit Stripe gum for some reason.
  14. Friends spending time together

    There was one that talked back to you at Disney World until a few years ago
  15. Space Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland has a lighting effect inspired by the CoP
