  1. San Francisco's Midwinter Exposition was in many ways a scaled-down version of Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition....a major difference being that the main structures were designed in an eclectic mixture of architectural styles....California Mission, Romanesque, Egyptian, Indian, and Persian. The central "Court of Honor" featured the 266-foot high Bonet Electric Tower, illuminated at night with multi-colored lights, around which were grouped the Administration, Horticulture & Agriculture, Fine Arts, Manufactures, and Machinery buildings. The exposition even featured a smaller version of Chicago's famous 250-foot Ferris Wheel - the 100-foot diameter Firth Wheel. The Japanese Village was one of the more notable attractions which survives to this day as the Japanese Tea Garden; and the Court of Honor remains as the Music Concourse.

  2. TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT!

    See another beautiful World's Fair site visited by CSI:NY! TONIGHT at an all new time-- 9/8 central on CBS!
  3. Dear WFC Friends... I'm extremely pleased to announce that this Friday's episode of CSI:NY is not only another one written by Yours Truly-- but it marks the second time over the past six seasons that I've proudly managed to shoot on the grounds of a former World's Fair. In the interest of avoiding any spoilers-- I'll stay away from the "how" and "why" of this particular "whodunit" for now. But I would like to share a personal snapshot with you here-- taken during production at one of my absolute favorite places on the planet. Hope you enjoy. And I look forward to hearing your thoughts on "2,918 Miles," an all new episode of CSI:NY, this Friday at 8/7central, on CBS.
