Amusement parks and World's Fairs really come to life at night, with the play of colored lights on water and metal, stone and stucco. I love today's photos from the 1964 New York World's Fair!
General Electric's "Progressland" dome is appropriately dazzling at night. Here you can see one of the many colorful patterns created in the lights that covered it. It must have been quite a sight in person, and twice as nice with the reflection in the pool that contained the "Fountain of the Planets".
We've seen the Tower of Light before, but I don't think I'll get any complaints for showing it again. Each night "amid appropriate ceremonies" (according to the official guide book), a 12 billion candlepower beam was turned on, pointing straight up into the heavens. Passing geese were instantly fried!
