High above the World's Fair Marina, summer 1964. No one in the stands at Shea so all those cars were there for the World's Fair.

Looking at the water I can see why no one was out swimming!

I think, somewhere off to the right side of this photo, was "The World's Fair Motel" (rather cleverly named I'd say).   I clearly remember standing near the motel lobby entrance and looking directly toward Shea and the large orange and blue things all over the stadium.  We entered the Fair from 111th Street near the Space Park.  It was a two or three minute taxi ride from the motel--almost a straight shot as I recall.  It must have been just to the right in this photo.

During my tenure in New York I was fortunate to find quick and easy transportation to the Fair by subway; first from 34th Street in Manhattan, then from Elmhurst, Queens. I guess I never much thought about those who had more complicated routes.
