Amazing Photos of the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair

The 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair was a world’s fair that held over 140 pavilions and 110 restaurants, representing 80 nations (hosted by 37), 24 US states, and over 45 corporations with the goal and result of building exhibits or attractions at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in Queens, New York City. The immense fair covered 646 acres (2.61 km2) on half the park, with numerous pools or fountains, and an amusement park with rides near the lake.

These amazing photos were taken by JFCiesla and his good friend William J. Armstrong of the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair at Flushing Meadow, New York.
“It is interesting to look back to what now is over a half century; at the displays, and how life was like back then. It is interesting to see how the average person dressed as he/she went to the Fair. Far more men in suits and women in dresses.”
