Monday Links for Dad

First of all, Happy Birthday Dad! You’re probably not reading this, but I love you anyway. =)  If you happen to see, say if Mom directs you to it, here are some fun links I thought you’d like for the World’s Fair. Next time I’m home, I am going to ask if you have any memorabilia.

My dad loves the 1964 New York World’s Fair; he spent many childhood days there (he grew up in Forest Hills Gardens, Queens).

Here are some links about the 1964 Fair:

Expo Museum

An awesome photo set on Flickr

Walt Disney also had a hand in the New York Fair

A great Images of America book about the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair

Read a brief history of the fair on the Gotham Center blog

The World’s Fair Carousel

Photo spread from 1965 National Geographic magazine.

And of course, you can always search YouTube for videos about the fair.

Happy Monday! Happy Birthday Dad! Happy Fair-Going everyone.

  1. I was checking out the links you suggested. It just so happens I happen to have the April 1965 issue of National Geographic magazine with the Worlds Fair Phot spread.
