Have any of you ever been to the World’s fair? I haven’t but I have heard family and friends speak of having memories of going. I have found collectible glasses and mugs at thrift shops here and there but I don’t ever remember seeing any advertisements and didn’t even know it still was a thing. So… I did what most of us do and “googled” it! And guess what? I found out it will be in Queens, New York this year!
If your parents or grandparents were in the New York City area in the early 1960s, you probably heard lots of stories about all the cool inventions and park rides they saw at the New York World’s Fair.
The famous fair held between 1964 and 1965 at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park included 140 pavilions, 110 restaurants, and 45 additional attractions. It was, for many attendees, their first interaction with computers and other “futuristic” technologies presented by corporations like IBM and Bell System. Plus, about 80 nations and 24 states were represented during the fair.
Now, the World’s Fair is coming back to Queens for two days on April 28 and 29.
