1964 World's Fair to Cost $1 Billion

Recommended Posts

Wow. Is it just me, or does anyone else think that building sure doesn't look like a million bucks in 1961? Interesting article though.

Hello Everyone:

I have an original ad from a publication from 1939 that boast of the Administration Building from the 1939-40 New York World's Fair having cost $900,000.00- and that was in 1938 when it was completed!!!  That building was a beauty- it is a real shame that it wasn't saved for a post-fair repurposing.  It would have made a nice Administration Building for the 1964-65 Fair with some modifications to make it look more 1960's modern.
