Upon looking closely. I can see some construction equipment in the photo, so maybe it it is fall of 1966. Interesting view from this era!

View from New York Airways helicopter. Things in this view had barely been graded, but not yet reseeded. By the following June those empty fields were nice and green.

I suspect if the passenger had looked out the other window, they'd have seen a few pavilions still lingering, awaiting demolition at Fair Corporation cost because the tenant had gone belly up.
