The 1964 World's Fair was held in Flushing-Corona Park in Queens. Two of the fair's most memorable fixtures -- the Unisphere and the New York Pavilion -- can still be found in the park today. The rest of the fair is long gone. These photos look back at what the fair grounds looked like in 1964 and 1965 when the fair was in full swing.
