  1. According to this article - published in August of 2017, just prior to the Space Needle's $100-million renovation - the dining experience at SkyCity has slipped badly! What ever happened to the courteousness that existed at the restaurant during the World's Fair and for many years afterward? The Space Needle's current owner, Jeffrey Wright, should be ashamed....sounds like it's more about "turning a profit" and less about providing patrons with a memorable dining experience. Let's hope that things change for the better after the new restaurant opens..... https://www.seattletimes.com/life/food-drink/sorrow-at-the-seattle-space-needle/
  2. Found these very colorful Kodachrome slides of the Seattle World's Fair on Flickr.....and a bonus piece about the Space Needle's "change of colors" in 1968.....
  3. Photos and texts of the remarks made in December 1962. It was President Lyndon Johnson, of course, who opened the Fair in April 1964. This is from the Prelinger Archives.
  4. No idea why this interesting archived piece showed up in my Zite iPad news aggregator app. The Atlantic, January, 1962; written while President of NYWF 1964-65 Corporation. http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1962/01/are-cities-dead/6546/
