It's time for another random selection of photos from the 1964/65 New York World's Fair!
The Swiss Sky Ride would have been a "must ride" for me! Here's a nice look at the station near the Swiss pavilion - the other station was across the fairgrounds near the Korea pavilion. The maximum height reached was 113 feet, which is pretty darn high.
If you're going to have big successful companies participating in your World's Fair, then Coca Cola needs to be included. The tower with the Coke logo held the world's largest carillion, with 610 bells that were electronically amplified. Who doesn't love a carillion?!? One exhibit inside the building was the "Global Holiday", a 15-minute walk in which fairgoers visit such faraway places as a bustling Hong Kong street, a serene Indian garden, a Bavarian ski lodge, a Cambodian forest, and the harbor of Rio de Janeiro.
Here's the Eastern Air Lines pavilion; if you flew on Eastern with a "World's Fair ticket", you would be shuttled from Idlewild/La Guardia to our exclusive World's Fair terminal... with telephones, rest rooms, baggage facilities ... and more. Seems like a pretty sweet deal!
