Photo Gallery Thursday " The 1964 Worlds Fair"

I found this cool replica layout of the 1964 World's Fair at the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex at Grand Central Terminal. The museum displays historical artifacts of the New York City Subway, bus, commuter rail, and bridge and tunnel systems under the administration of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. They had quite a few cool items from the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs. My parents actually attended the 1964 fair, which is now the ground where the US Open Tennis Championships are played. It was really cool to see the exhibits, and that they were free of charge as well. The store has some neat items which would make good souvenirs for yourself or family and friends. You can check our their current exhibits HERE

Here is a bit more information:
