The 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, held at Flushing Meadow in Queens, featured 140 pavilions on a 646-acre fairground designed by renowned planner Robert Moses. Taking place during the dawn of the space age, the theme was “Man in a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe.” This documentary combines archival footage with interviews with adults who recall their childhood experiences at the fair.
