Arriving for a day at the Fair in August 1965!

Recommended Posts

I rememeber arriving at the Fair on our second day in early September of 1965.  I also remember standing on that platform that night as we departed and looking back trying to absorb every shape and every color. I wanted to remember the view of the Fair forever.  So far, I have.

Sounds like me when I was leaving for the last time. I imagine many of us here had the same sort of moment. Quite indelible, wasn't it?

Oh yes, Bill.  Indelible.  Sometimes, for just a moment or two, I can actually sense the feel of the late summer air, the Unisphere aglow, the sounds of the crowd, the  incredible night time color.  But the sensation only lasts for a few seconds.
