When the World Came to Queens

Recommended Posts

Please join me at the Queens Theater on April 22, 2014 - the 50th anniversary of the opening of the 1964 New York World's Fair - for a look at the 1939 and 1964 fairs. I'll be showing pictures of both from my collection as I talk about how they came to be, their major highlights, and the legacies they left for the city and those who visited. There will be two sessions, one at 3 PM and another at 7 PM. I'll also have copies of my books available. More details should be on the Theater site in a few days.

We also hope to add a few more surprises for that day.

I hope to see you there!

Bill

Some folks have asked me if the presentations will be the same at 3 PM and 7 PM, or if one was on 1939 and the other on 1964. Both will include a short segment on the 1939 Fair and then move on to 1964. My plan is to use two different sets of photos, so they should be fairly different talks - no pun intended!
