My Time at the historical 1964/65 World's Fair New York

I am so grateful to my Godfather Uncle Paul and Aunt Estelle for taking me to the 1964/65 World's Fair at Flushing Meadows Carona Park in Queens, New York.  It was one of the largest World's Fairs to be held in the United States.  I was very young but I clearly remember the Unisphere, Belgian Waffles, the debut of the Ford Mustang and millions of people. The Unisphere can still be seen today and everytime I drive past it on my way to New York City it brings back wonderful childhood memories.  It is a 12 story high spherical stainless steel representation of Earth.  The theme of the World's Fair was "Peace Through Understanding" and the Unisphere represented the theme of global interdependence.

My old photo of the Unisphere:
